Years before Abbott & Costello met Frankenstein, Universal released this wacky horror-comedy mashup, the studio’s third vehicle for famed vaudevillians Olsen & Johnson. The very loose story, an excuse for a string of very funny gags and in-jokes, involves a haunted house that happens to be right next door to Chic & Ole’s nightclub.
