Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy [DVD] [1955]

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello made a series of films in which they "met" the great movie monsters. This disc of Abbott & Costello Meet the Mummy offers a standard full-frame transfer. English, French, and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. There are no subtitles, but the English soundtrack is closed captioned. Supplemental materials include production notes and the theatrical trailer. Universal has done a decent job with this title, although big Abbott and Costello fans may wish for more information about the humorous twosome.

Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy
Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy is the last of the team's vehicles for Universal-International. Stranded in Egypt, Bud and Lou hire themselves out as travelling companions to archeologist Kurt Katch. Before long, Katch is murdered by a group of cultists, and a medallion, embossed with a map which leads to a sacred burial site, is accidentally swallowed by Costello. The boys become the unwilling pawns of the cultists, led by Richard Deacon, and a greedy adventuress, played by Marie Windsor. The last scene finds Costello being menaced by three mummies, two of them bogus. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
