Movie Clip

Night Monster (1942) - I Didn't Send For Any Psychiatrist Butler Rolf (Bela Lugosi) inducts shrink Dr. Harper (Irene Hervey) and crime writer pal Dick (Don Porter), leading to the first scene for Ralph Morgan as Ingston, lord of the spooky manor, hoisted by driver Laurie (Leif Erikson) and introducing Nils Asther as guru-like Singh, early in Universal's Night Monster, 1942.
Night Monster (1942) - They Call It Cosmic Substance The paralyzed master of the house Ingster (Ralph Morgan) gives the floor to his yogi (Nils Asther as Agor Singh) who explains to the group (doctors Francis Pierlot and Frank Reicher, butler Bela Lugosi, mystery writer Don Porter, shrink Irene Hervey and patient Fay Helm) about creepy Eastern theories, in Universal’s programmer Night Monster, 1942.
Night Monster (1942) - After What I've Seen And Heard Joining the expository opening for this semi-ensemble Universal programmer, Millie (Janet Shaw), maid in the mansion, expresses her discontent to Bela Lugosi as the butler Rolf, who’s not happy with her or the chauffeur Laurie (Leif Erikson), in the first feature by the noted Hollywood craftsman Ford Beebe, Night Monster, 1942.
Bud Abbott And Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) - You Won't Feel A Thing Abbott And Costello are at Universal so there’s no worry about licensing monsters, though only two are originals, here in mayhem toward the end, Dracula (Bela Lugosi) plans to give Lou’s brain to the monster (Glenn Strange, not Karloff) and Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.) is on their side until the moon comes out, in Bud Abbott And Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein, 1948.
Bud Abbott And Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) - You Little Blimp Just off the phone with the Wolf Man from London, postal clerk Wilbur (Lou Costello) deals with cranky McDougal (Frank Ferguson), amorous Sandra (Lenore Aubert) and snarky pal Chick (Bud Abbott), in Bud Abbott And Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein, 1948.
Bud Abbott And Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) - Dracula's Legend Delivering materials to the local "House Of Horror," Wilbur (Lou Costello) tries to convince Chick (Bud Abbott) he's seen Dracula (Bela Lugosi), in Bud Abbott And Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein, 1948.
Who Done It? (1942) -- Now Playing, Alcatraz! Would-be mystery writers Chick and Mervyn (Bud Abbott, Lou Costello) in the studio for the radio show, bothering writer Patrick Knowles, producer Louise Albritton, executive Thomas Gomez, Paul Dubov the radio actor, Mary Wickes with an exclamation, in Universal’s Who Done It?, 1942.
Who Done It? (1942) -- One Limburger Cheese Sandwich! First scene for the stars, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, advancing the plot only in that it establishes them as Chick Larkin and Mervyn Milgrim, counter help in the cafe downstairs at the radio network, but also, we’ll learn, wanna-be mystery writers, in their ninth feature, Who Done It?, 1942.
Time Of Their Lives, The (1946) - Brush With The British In Revolutionary War-era Nassau County, Long Island, with as fancy an opening as any Abbott and Costello movie, we meet lovely Marjorie Reynolds, Bud as servant Cuthbert, Anne Gillis as feisty Nora, who prefers Lou, as tinker Horatio, in the comic ghost romp The Time Of Their Lives, 1946.
Time Of Their Lives, The (1946) - How Can Us Be Down There? Joining a borderline shocking scene in which misguided American revolutionaries (Robert Barrat in charge) have shot fellow Yanks Horatio (Lou Costello) and Melody (Marjorie Reynolds), they pop back up, establishing the premise for the rest of the Abbott and Costello vehicle The Time Of Their Lives, 1946.
Time Of Their Lives, The (1946) - It's You They're After Revolutionary War ghosts Horatio (Lou Costello) and Melody (Marjorie Reynolds), stirred to action by the arrival of Bud Abbott (as a descendant of Lou's old romantic rival) and friends at their Long Island estate, discovering their powers, Gale Sondergaard an attuned servant, in The Time Of Their Lives, 1946.
Last Of The Mohicans, The (1920) - Consent To Be My Squaw Uncas (Albert Roscoe), and fellow Mohicans wisely kept watch as their tactic failed and Magua (Wallace Beery) and his Huron band captured Cora (Barbara Bedford), Alice (Lillian Hall) and Randolph (George Hackathorne), action ensuing, in The Last Of The Mohicans, 1920.
