Monsterfest: Bud and Lou style
Perennially snakebit, Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney) can’t even make a dire phone-call to clueless Wilbur Gray (Lou Costello) without that pesky full moon getting in the way. Of course, this opening scene is all just a nice excuse for the new Universal makeup wizard, Bud Westmore, to show off his new, streamlined Wolf Man transformations. It looks good enough, though it seems whatever Lon Chaney may have gained in comfort from Bud’s less time-consuming makeup, he had to trade-off any facial mobility as his face looks fixed in the same expression throughout the film.
Bud and Lou’s misadventures unloading McDougal’s crates is a great mix of laughs & chills where we get to see a variation of the “moving candle” bit, Dracula reviving the monster, and for the first time in any Universal picture the camera doesn’t move or cut away as the vampire exits from his coffin. And Glenn Strange, looking rather gruesome in Westmore’s best makeup work, seems creakier than ever before as the monster.
I have to mention one of my personal favorite Bud/Lou moments when they make their first trip to the island with Joan Raymond: Lou tells Bud in reference to Joan “she’s mine too” then proceeds to dab his mouth with Bud’s necktie.
While the mere presence of Abbott and Costello in this picture may turn the stomachs of many “horror purists”, it’s obvious that great care was taken by the filmmakers not to ridicule the monsters. Without the two comics, you would still have a standard Universal horror film. With them, it remains a movie that shows more skill & thought was put into it than the last “serious” monster film “House of Dracula” and I am personally glad that Universal didn’t let the monsters die with that misfire.
Agree With The Critics On This One
Stupid? Yes. Corny? Yes. Hokey? Yes. Entertaining? Definitely. Lots of good laughs? You said it!
To be honest, I am not a big fan of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello but this is a funny movie, considered their best by most critics and, for once, I agree with them. I mean, where else can you see The Wolf Man, Frankenstein and Dracula all together in the same film? Not only that, we get two of the original actors who actually played those roles: Lon Chaney (wolf man) and Bela Lugosi (Dracula).
The special-effects are terrible but, hey, the film is close to 60 years old. If you are going to see only one A-C film, this is the one you want to get.
