Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein

Corrected entry: In the train station, Sandra comes up the counter where McDougal is waiting. They are strangers and are not introduced. However, after their brief dialogue when Sandra turns to leave she addresses him by name: "Very interesting, Mr. McDougal."

Correction: Of course she would know who he is, she was involved in helping him get the 'displays' for his horror museum, so there is no reason to think she would not know who he is.

Factual error: When Dracula is about to bite the neck of his female assistant you can plainly see him in her vanity mirror and as all good horror fans know, you can't see a vampire in a mirror, especially Dracula.

Question: As the monster is breaking free from the crate, Wilbur snaps out of the hypnosis that Dracula placed on him. When Wilbur sees Dracula and the monster ready to leave, he immediately pretends to still be hypnotized and unable to move. Since he only pretended to still be hypnotized so as to not alert Dracula and the monster, as soon as Chick, McDougal and the insurance agent showed up why didn't he immediately run to them screaming for help? Why was he acting like he was still hypnotized?

Answer: He's a rather simple-minded guy. He was scared and had become so overly-immersed in pretending to be hypnotized that it took time for him to act normally. Also, it's a movie. They're going for comic effect.
