We had two women — one was a heroine and one was a villain. And nobody could figure out why these two beautiful girls were after Costello.
Producer Robert Arthur later recalled: Principal photography began on February 5 and ran through March 20, All I have to do is frighten the boys, a perfectly appropriate activity. As director Barton would later say: You have to understand that working with two zanies like Abbott and Costello was not the normal Hollywood set.
They never went by the script and at least once a day there would be a pie fight. Bela of course would have nothing to do with any of this.
He would just glare at those involved with his famous deadly stare and the only emotion he would show physically was one of utter disgust. An infamous story from filming also involved Strange who, during the scene in the laboratory where the Monster comes after Chick and Wilbur after throwing Sandra through the window, stepped on a camera cable, causing the camera to fall and break some bones in his foot. So in fact Chaney wound up playing two different monsters in this movie. Another humorous story from the set involved actress Lenore Aubert, who wrapped in a mink, put a leash on Strange and, accompanied by Abbott, Costello, and Chaney in full make-up, took the Monster out for a stroll on the lot just in time for the studio tour tram.
The rubber head appliance worn by Glenn Strange to play the Frankenstein monster fitted him so tightly that, after a few hours under the hot lights, he could shake his head and hear the sweat rattling around inside it. During the final chase scene, when Wilbur and Chick are standing in front of a door and the Frankenstein monster punches through it, Costello deliberately went off his mark and got hit on the jaw.Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (11/11) Movie CLIP - Death of the Monster (1948) HD

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein | STORIES BEHIND THE SCREEN
A live-action parody film, Frankenweeniedepicting Victor Frankenstein as a modern American boy and his deceased pet dog as the monster, was made by Tim Burton in Burton remade it as a full-length animated film in Frankenstein's assistant[ edit ] Although Frankenstein's hunchbacked assistant is often referred to as " Igor " in descriptions of the films, he is not so called in the earliest films.
In both Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, Frankenstein has an assistant who is played both times by Dwight Frye who is crippled. In the original film the character is named "Fritz" who is hunchbacked and walks with the aid of a small cane.
Fritz did not originate from the Frankenstein novel, and instead originated from the earliest recorded play adaptation, Presumption; or, the Fate of Frankensteinwhere he was played by Robert Keeley. Both characters would be killed by Karloff's monster in their respective films.
It was not until Son of Frankenstein that a character called "Ygor" first appears here played by Bela Lugosi and revived by Lugosi in The Ghost of Frankenstein after his apparent murder in the earlier film. This character — a deranged blacksmith whose neck was broken and twisted due to a botched hanging — befriends the monster and later helps Dr.
Wolf Frankenstein, leading to the "hunchbacked assistant" called "Igor" commonly associated with Frankenstein in popular culture. Frye also appears in later films in the series, such as in Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man Cancelled remake[ edit ] Guillermo del Toro had expressed interest in directing the reboot film for Universal.
