While Ann Blyth was filming Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid (1948), Glenn Strange was busy on another soundstage filming Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. He was the monster. At the time of this photo, the Monster came to visit the Mermaid. Maybe he was taking her to lunch. Maybe she was lunch.
We discuss Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid in this post on my Another Old Movie Blog, and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein here at this post.
Both creatures were created by Universal-International makeup department head Bud Westmore. Universal, of course, was famous for its monster movies. From the Monster and the Mermaid--Happy Halloween!
