With Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre and Lon Chaney Jr, this is a fun episode!
Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre and Lon Chaney, Jr. (Creighton Chaney)decide to meet at a hotel called O'Hare Inn near Chicago to discuss the monster business. Naturally, heads turn when they enter the motel. It is a large hotel with swimming pool, meeting rooms and the need to hire a couple of young guys - Martin Milner and George MaHaris arrive in the famous Corvette. Bringing in giants of film like these three guest stars made for a fun episode and a kind of a tip of the hat to these horror stars of the 1940s and 1950s. Karloff and Chaney had the opportunity to done makeup as Frankenstein and The Wolf Man. Just as Milner and Maharis show up, so does the hotel van with a bevy of beauties for a secretary's training program. While George is busy checking the girls, Martin is stuck with group sales and the three horror stars. Marharis doesn't believe that he has seen Frankenstein and Wolf Man so seeing is believing. What follows is a comedy type show with the misunderstandings of these groups. An entertaining show. You might notice Mrs. Baxter (she was sitting next to the coffin)in this episode. She will be remembered in that outstanding role she did as old Mrs. Havisham in the 1946 version of Great Expectations (the best version). She did much in her career including playing in Unsinkable Molly Brown, Becket and Anastasia. The three old time horror actors still had it and worked well together in this for just plain fun. Take a look if you get the chance.
