Lou Costello (1906-1969)

1. - Nelson Eddy, Phantom of the Opera, 1943. Abbott & Costello were the rivals (with The Phantom) for soprano  Susanna Foster in Universal's  original concept  for re-tooling Lon Chaney's 1925 classic.

2. - Buddy Hackettacjkett5e, Fireman Save My Child, 1954.  Lou was too ill to work and the duo pulled out (they are still seen - but of course! -  in  some long-shots).  Universal replaced their prized comedy duo with... Hugh O'Brien and Buddy Hackett... who would play Costello in the Bud & Lou tele-bio, 1978.
