DescriptionDouble bill of classic comedy featuring Lou Abbott and Bud Costello. In 'Abbott and Costello Meet The Killer, Boris Karloff' (1949) the boys take on East Indian culture in a murder mystery romp. Ski resort bellhop Freddie Phillips (Lou Costello) stands accused of the murder of a lawyer, committed shortly after they've had a public disagreement. He's innocent as a lamb, and his best pal/resident detective Casey Edwards (Bud Abbott), pitches in enthusiastically to prove it. They encounter the sinister Swami Talpur (Boris Karloff) who attempts to hypnotise Freddie into signing a confession of guilt then committing suicide but fails, as Freddie is too daft to be hypnotised. Detectives and the boys frantically search for the real killer, and it's not the Swami. 'Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' (1953) is a comic spoof of the classic horror story. Slim (Bud Abbott) and Tubby (Lou Costello) are a pair of inept US cops visiting London to study English police methods. An encounter with beautiful young suffragette Vicky Edwards (Helen Westcott) leads to the discovery that her uncle, Dr Henry Jekyll (Boris Karloff), has created a potion, which transforms him into the evil Mr Hyde, monstrous scourge of the city...
