This movie is an institution at Rancho Yesteryear...I watch it every Halloween.

"But does Dracula know it?

My favorite of all they did. I saw it when I was a kid, and it's the first time was ever scared and laughing at the same time.

My favorite line in the movie:

Lon Chaney Jr. as Larry Talbot: You don't understand. Every night when the moon is full, I turn into a wolf.
Costello as Wilbur: You and twenty million other guys.

Abbott: You're making enough noise to wake the dead!
Costello: You don't have to wake him up. He's UP.

If anyone's interested, join Bud and Lou's daughters and other family members when they set sail next year on Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas, 7-night Canada/New England (Oct. 1-8, 2011) out of Boston (roundtrip).
Our 2009 was hilarious and featured special guest Julie Ream, whose uncle was Glenn Strange ("Frankenstein"). For more info, contact Chris Costello (Lou's daughter) and travel agent at: for flyer and sign-up sheet.

Only the best movie ever made. When I was a kid we had an 8mm movie camera and projector. This was one of the movies you could buy in the store in 8mm and since it was a family favorite, we owned a copy. Of course, it was a drastically abridged version lasting only about 10 minutes, but it was still fun.
