ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE, 1953. Original antique US Insert (14 x 36″) movie poster for sale starring, Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Boris Karloff, writer Lee Loeb and director Charles Lamont. It is undeniable that Abbott and Costello posters have created quite a following amongst collectors. Robert Louis Stevenson’s original characters from the novel “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” are definitely not the same persona originally intended, but Abbott & Costello as two American cops do put up a classic comedic performance which is often regarded as one of their best from the declining years of their careers. This movie poster has fantastic artwork and it is made all that more valuable by the fact the famous Boris Karloff co lead this antique film.
