Personal Quote:

[on directing Bud Abbott and Lou Costello] I found that if we rehearsed too much with them, their material got stale and they'd start adding things that didn't mean anything. All I needed a rehearsal for was to place my cameras. There was nothing I could tell them because no one could direct their routines as well as they. See more »

Trivia:

Although Lubin was a contract director at Universal, on a set weekly salary, his first film with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, Buck Privates (1941), was such a huge hit ($4 million gross on a $180,000 budget) that the studio gave him a $5,000 bonus.
