Description: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences this humorous Halloween double bill as part of A Monstrous Centennial: Universal’s Legacy of Horror. The series includes screenings and artwork from the golden age of movie monsters created by Universal Studios.

Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) pits the comedy duo against not only the monster but also Dracula and the Wolf Man. Despite being played for laughs, the film is actually better than either of the "serious" monster rallies that preceded it (House of Frankenstein and House of Dracula). The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (1966) stars Don Knotts as a man who must spend a night in an allegedly haunted house.
