Re: Favorite Abbott and Costello movies

These films are quite a group- and I rate the top 2 films as -

Little Giant
The Time of Their Lives

There are others just below like -
The Noose Hangs High
Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein
Who Done It?

There is one film that is a sort of tribute to silent movies-
Abbott and Costello Meet the Keystone Kops

Then there is their Scooby Doo pilot -
Hold That Ghost

Then to round out my top 10 - the starters or Whose on First?

One Night in the Tropics
Buck Privates
In the Navy

If I had ever been an actor during the boys era, I would have wanted to work with these kids. They still are a unique act.

Re: Favorite Abbott and Costello movies

Abbott and Costello are my favorite comedy duo. I would need to rewatch a bunch of their films to be able to confidently declare which of them are the favorites. But I am sure Meet Frankenstein would be toward the top.

Re: Favorite Abbott and Costello movies

Hey, Hobnob, just saying hi, as I just found this place. So glad to see you here.

I don't know - can't remember the names of - my favorite Abbot & Costello films. When I was a kid, I love all of them.

Wow - a nest format. I'm thrilled. Will see you again, I hope.

Re: Favorite Abbott and Costello movies

Hi Hobnob, spiderwort and everyone!!

This is a great site, I love the nest feature and you can also download the chrome extension and be able to see the boards on IMDB again!

I'm sure others will join us soon!!

Favorite A&C movies:

Hold That Ghost
Abbott and Costello meet the…series

Hey, Mike.

I'm not sure Hobnob is actually here. When I found his name, I just posted without thinking. But I realize this is an old IMDd post, and, sadly, I don't think Hobnob is signed up here. Maybe he'll find his way one of these days. That would be great. In any case, it's nice to see you here; I hope others from IMDB 2 will follow.
