1953 / 76min / DCP

DIRECTOR: CHARLES LAMONT

CAST: BUD ABBOTT, LOU COSTELLO, BORIS KARLOFF

America’s favorite rapid-fire straight man and his dull-witted partner are in fine fettle as Slim and Tubby, American cops working in a London that’s in the grips of a malevolent monster. Setting their sights on capturing the culprit, they make the acquaintance of the charming Dr. Henry Jekyll, played by the legendary Boris Karloff, and, well, evidently our heroes have never read Robert Louis Stevenson. One of the best-loved of the boys’ outings with the Universal monster squad, packing in chills and belly-laughs in equal measure.
