Facts about

The original script 'Easy Does It', was originally intended as a vehicle for Bob Hope. After the huge success of Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein, Universal-International wanted another "horror" comedy with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, so the script was rewritten for them. Oddly enough, the role played by Boris Karloff was originally written for a woman.
The film was originally banned in Denmark due to the scene where corpses play cards.
After filming was completed, Lou Costello was bedridden for several months due to a relapse of rheumatic fever, which he originally battled in 1943. As a result, the duo did not make another film together until Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion, a year later.
