ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE KILLER BORIS KARLOFF (1949 U.S.) D: CHARLES T. BARTON W: HUGH WEDLOCK JNR./HARRY SNYDER/JOHN GRANT P: ROBERT ARTHUR
Lou Costello`s just been fired from his hotel bellboy job and the guest who had him fired ends up dead. Bud Abbott is a detective who helps him find the real killer (the big joke is Lou as bait). Pretty weak A and C entry has the (then already dated) moving corpse routine and some decent serial-style thrills in the underground cavern climax. Karloff (not the killer) is Swami, a hypnotist in a turban. With Alan Mowbray, James Flavin, Percy Helton, Claire Du Brey, Harry Hayden, Murray Alper, Bobbie Barber, Roland Winters, Marjorie Bennett and Jack Chefe.
