Bud Abbott was born in 1897 actually and died in 1974, aged 76.

There were plenty of persons around in the 1950's, 1960's and even 1970's who were born in the last years of the 1800's.


You hear "18XX" and think it was a long time ago; well yeah if someone was born in 1822, but just before the 1900's would have made them a few years younger than each new decade. So by the 1960's or even 1970's these persons were *only* in their late fifties to 70's. Admittingly that is considered "old" by some, but still.


Groucho Marx was born in 1890 and lived until 1977, dying at age 86.


If you were to look up famous persons from the 1940's through say 1950's am willing to bet you'd find plenty were born in the late 1800's up to 1910 or so.

Like I said; persons *hear* 18xx and freak out, but for those living in the 1960's, 1970's or even 1980's it wasn't that long ago.

The belief back-in-the-day among the rank-and-file moviegoers was that Bud was jealous of Lou. He was tired of being the straight man. Maybe that's apocryphal but it was the belief as I recall it.

He was a brilliant straight man, not easy to do , he had perfect timing.. but he needed the wee man as his career more or less stopped after Lou and him broke up.. he tried again with another partner but didnt work..

In the 1927 Laurel & Hardy silent short "Battle Of The Century" you can see Lou Costello in the audience of the boxing match.
