Abbott and Costello are one of the greatest comedy teams of all time. Their flawless comedic timing and sharp humor made them film and radio stars for decades. The duo released dozens of films between 1940 and 1956. Their movies often had over-the-top or downright ridiculous plots and themes, but their effortless performance kept the characters grounded and believable no matter the setting. Abbott and Costello movies ranged from visiting an African safari to stepping into Dracula’s castle. There was, however, one constant.
