A Sunday Kind of Love





Back to my list.....
It's Sunday so I thought you might like some laughs along with your scares today.

I do like my horror to make me laugh intentionally as well as unintentionally. This is another one filled with good childhood memories for me.

I give you....
Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.


I used to spend a lot of Saturday nights with my grandma, and every Sunday morning meant bacon and eggs and then Abbott and Costello on the Sunday morning movie. I'd always cross my fingers for this one, and I guess that the station didn't have a huge catalog of Abbott and Costello titles, because I saw this one ALOT. (along with Abbott and Costello Go To Mars, another great one.)

This is a beloved film for many people, and I'd be surprised if most of you have not seen it or at least heard of it. But it's Sunday and Sunday mornings make me think of Abbott and Costello. And bacon.
I'll keep this tradition and keep my Sunday picks on the lighter side for the rest of the month.
The bacon part is up to you, however.

Here's the trailer.






Here's a Youtube clip that happens to have one of my favorite moments in the film... it's not comedy but it's a keeper. This is actually three clips of so called 'bloopers' from the film- but watch for 'blooper' number two- I could give a rat's hinder about Dracula appearing in the mirror when maybe he shouldn't- focus instead on the chick Drac is putting the bite down on and LOOK AT THE EXPRESSION ON HER FACE.
That's bliss if I ever saw it.



Some other Halloween fun I discovered this weekend-
this blog (and many others) are having their own Halloween countdowns this month.
But I especially enjoy this one:

Happy Sunday
