      I like Abbott & Costello movies, even though they do get repetitive after a while. And, suprisingly, I’ve never seen the film Abbott & Costello Meet the Invisible Man; until last night that is. As far as their movies are concerned, this one wouldn’t be among their best.

      However, it was still entertaining enough. Considering they met the Invisible man originally in the hit film Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein (at the very end of the film while they are rowing away from the castle) it would have


      been nice to see this film be some sort of continuation of that one.

      Instead though, they chose to make the two stars private investigators and the invisible man a professional boxer who is accused of murdering his manager and who injects himself with a special serum to escape police while he’s trying to prove his innocence. Most of the movie is the typical slapstick you would come to expect from this duo.

      You have Abbott being the brains but Costello being the one who goes through all ...


      • the hard parts. He has to escape a hypnotist.

        He has to fight in a boxing match. And, well, I don’t want to reveal the ending, but he ends up being punished a bit at the very end of the film too (in a corny but funny sort of way).

        It was definitely interesting seeing William Frawley in a role other than Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy. He played the detective in this movie and, while he did an OK job, he didn’t seem to change much

        from his television character.

        I would also like to compliment the special effects in this film. Because it’s a comedy, you would think they wouldn’t have been that good.

        But, they weren’t too bad considering the film was made in the 1950s. In fact, I’ve seen a lot of high-budget science fiction films from that area that would pale in comparison to this one.

        Like I said before, this isn’t the best movie from Abbott & Costello. But, it is still a great family film for those Saturdays when you have nothing better to do.
