    Abbott and Costello Agreement, Following "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein." A fourteen-page contract, dated December 24, 1948, with clean, sharp Bud Abbott and Lou Costello signatures, the Universal Pictures, Inc. stamp. and lots of legalese language covering "percentage compensation" from their films - drawn up only moths after the tremendous hit, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Bud has signed in blue ink, Lou in black, and the document also bears the signatures of Universal's vice-president and assistant secretary. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein had proved to be a box office sensation - one of the biggest in Universal's history - and the stars naturally wanted to be sure they were receiving due compensation. Wonderful signatures in very desirable form!. Excellent condition. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
