Two hapless freight handlers find themselves encountering Dracula, the Frankenstein Monster and the Wolf Man.
Boris Karloff refused to play the monster, but as a favor to Universal he agreed to do publicity for this film - as long as he didn't have to see it. In several photos taken by Universal's publicity department, he is seen standing in line purchasing a ticket at a theater in New York City where the film is playing, and in other stills he is shown admiring the poster art for the film outside the theater lobby. Karloff later starred with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello in Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet the Killer Boris Karloff (1949) as well as Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1953).
The Monster: Yes, master.
Wilbur Grey: He thinks I'm Dracula!
It was well established that the Monster was terrified of fire. He would not have walked into the flames on the dock.
Charles Bradstreet is credited as Dr. Stevens, but his character is never once called "Doctor." He is always referred to as Professor Stevens.
For its original release, the Australian film board required that almost every scene involving a monster be removed before release.
