Lugosi didn't play Dracula as often as John Carradine did, 2 of which were part of the Universal Classic Monster series (House of Frankenstein and House of Dracula).Only the second time Lugosi played Dracula. We tend to think he played the Count in a long series of films, but there were only two. And I think this was Chaney's last outing as Larry Talbot, the definitive screen wolf man.
There's a funny exchange between Abbott's character and Costello's, where Abbott points out how he has always shared girls with Costello. "Didn't my girl bring along a friend for you?" "Yeah, and she was so cute with her wooden leg." Only that's not the exact dialogue. Anybody remember?
