Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene when Lou Costello is reading the narrative on Count Dracula we see the coffin door open and the candle on top of the box starts to descend. By the angle of the coffin door the candle would have easily fallen to the ground. If you look carefully you can see a thin black cord attached to the candle.

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.
