Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy, a review by Danae Cassandra




Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy
Year of Release: 1955
Directed By: Charles Lamont
Starring: Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Marie Windsor, Michael Ansara, Dan Seymour, Richard Deagon
Genre: Comedy

Overview:
Bud and Lou stumble upon a sacred medallion that holds the key to a legendary treasure.

My Thoughts:
Bud and Lou are always fun to watch, but this isn't up to the same level as ... Meet Frankenstein.  A number of the skits Bud & Lou do are funny - the hamburger routine and the shovel/pick routine are good, and I enjoyed the recurring gag of Lou piping up the snakes out of the pots.  I enjoyed Marie Windsor's determined villainess quite a bit as well.  On the downside, there was a completely unnecessary musical number in the middle of the film, and for all the movie's title, there's very little of the mummy here, and he's very cheap looking and hardly threatening. 

Recommended if you like Abbott and Costello - you'll enjoy this film.  If you aren't familiar with their work, I wouldn't start here - go for ... Meet Frankenstein instead.

Bechdel Test: Fail

Overall: 3/5

This animated series had some funny moments (I only own the first six episodes though). And they captured Rowan Atkinson quite well. But I didn't enjoy the first episode much.
