ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE MUMMY (1953 U.S.) D: CHARLES LAMONT W: JOHN GRANT/LEE LOEB P: HOWARD CHRISTIE
Bud and Lou's penultimate outing has them in possession of a cursed, valuable medallion that Marie Windsor and a mummy (or two) want to get their hands on. It's the usual nonsence with bodies moving around and the like, secret panels etc. Watchable enough, and that funny blocking-the-door-that-opens-outward gag from MEET FRANKENSTEIN (a truly great horror comedy) is re-used (well). With Michael Ansara, Mel Welles, Richard Deacon, Peggy King (who sings), Eddie Parker (as a mummy), Donald Kerr, Hank Mann and an animated bat. In b/w. The comedy duo's last feature together was DANCE WITH ME HENRY (1956).
