Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a 1953 horror comedy starring the comedic team of Bud Abbot and Lou Costello. Directed by Charles Lamont and co-starring horror film legend Boris Karloff, the movie is very loosely based on the classic novel The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Slim (Bud Abbot) and Tubby (Lou Costello) are American police detectives in London studying police tactics in an effort to better themselves. At the same time, Dr. Henry Jekyll (Boris Karloff) is secretly conducting experiments on himself in which he ingests a potion and transforms into the hideous Mr. Hyde, a monster with murderous thoughts. Mr. Hyde kills a doctor for scoffing at Jekyll's experiments and is filled with even more rage when he learns that the young woman he is mentoring, Vicky Edwards (Helen Westcott), has become engaged to newspaper man Bruce Adams (Craig Stevens). It's up to the bumbling duo of Abbott and Costello, as Slim and Tubby, to save the day.moreless
