Tomorrow at the Mayfair we are screening Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein and Jason & the Argonauts.
I love Abbott & Costello and the Universal Monsters, yet have somehow never seen this movie. I continue to be confused as to why only Frankenstein is in the title and it ignores Dracula and the Wolfman. Jason & the Argonauts is not only a movie that Tom Hanks hails as being better than Citizen Kane, it also has one of the most amazing fx scenes of all time in the form of the Argonauts battling against a batch of undead skeleton warriors. It is a staggering piece of work.
It is possibly the greatest one two punch of a movie matinee offering in the history of independent repertory theatres. Sunday March 16 at the Mayfair - Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein screens at 1:00pm followed by Jason & the Argonauts at 3:00pm.
