As the weekend winds to a close - my ritual is to turn on Turner Classic Movies and settle in for a good night's sleep with dreams fueled by melodrama, noir or musical doused with a healthy dose of nostalgia. Well tonight's feature is Abbott & Costello Meet the Mummy from 1955. Ancient Egypt is the setting and ancient jokes are on the docket in this (the last movie the duo made with Universal) creature feature starring the slapsticky duo Abbott and Costello and their monster muse, The Mummy. Marie Windsor and Peggy King ride along for the adventure providing a catalyst for the typical A&C nonsense as well as some eye candy.
"The fight the Goon of the Tomb!, The get clipped in the crypt! They're chummy with a mummy!" Sounds like business as usual for this wacky duo.
