BUD ABBOTT AND LOU COSTELLO MEET THE INVISIBLE MAN (1951)
This Invisible Man(no relation to that other one) is a boxer who's framed for murder and gets a couple of goofy-ass detectives(A & C) to help him clear his name. It's really hard for me to judge these classic A & C flicks since they have so much sentimental value after being a staple of my childhood TV-watching years. This one is not quite up there with their FRANKENSTEIN meeting or most of the group's other monster match-ups(this one doesn't really have any horror elements at all but more of a sci-fi feel with some mobster-drama thrown in) but it's still an enjoyable stupid watch on a Sunday morning. As a bonus you get Fred Mertz(William Frawley) as a police detective.
