31 Days of Halloween - Day 9 - Movie

Abbott and Costello end up in possession of a medallion that belongs to the living mummy, Klaris, leading them into trouble with the law and competing groups trying to obtain the medallion for their own ends.

Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955) was the last of the movies in which the comedy duo met Universal's classic monsters and was also their 28th, and final, film for Universal, and essentially, the end of their careers. It's not surprising. The comedy in this film does not produce any grins let alone guffaws, as the pair falls back on stale, often poorly staged,  routines, which are not helped by the film's lackluster direction.
