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.

More trivia for Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein

Question: Why would Dracula need to put Wilbur's brain in the body of Frankenstein's Monster? I understand the Count wanted a Monster who would be much more obedient and easier to control, however it seemed like the Monster was that way already; he would follow Dracula's commands with "Yes, Master." So what did Count Dracula need Wilbur for again?

Answer: The monster may have seemed obedient, but its overall behavior is unknown to us. It's possible that it was at times defiant, obstinate, or just didn't follow instructions completely or competently. It's also just a plot device for a silly movie. There has to be some reason, however flimsy, why Dracula wants Wilbur's brain.
