Reply Aristocrat August 19, 2012 Boris Karloff or is it Jeremy Irons? Getting harder to tell these days. Reply Elizabeth August 20, 2012 I love the images of Frankenstein sipping tea/coffee and having a slice of toast. Reply wonko August 28, 2012 @Elizabeth Frankenstein is the name of the scientist, not that of the creature Reply Martin August 31, 2012 Saturday night horror movie double bill, Frankenstein followed by the Wolfman, ah they were the days. Reply Keith Owen September 23, 2012 These photos of the Frankenstein monster 1931 – 1939 are from the sets of the three feature movies which starred BORIS KARLOFF as the monster. ‘Frankenstein’ 1931, ‘Bride of Frankenstein’ 1935 and ‘Son of Frankenstein’ 1939. ‘Son of Frankenstein’ is notable in that it featured BASIL RATHBONE as the doctor in this film. He was a ‘good’ doctor and was vindicated at the end of the movie. This film also featured BELA LUGOSI as the crimminally insane ‘IGOR’ and he held sway over the monster. IGOR, who suffered from a half broken neck from a failed hanging, also appeared in the fourth FRANKENSTEIN movie (featuring either Lon Chaney, Jr. or Glenn Strange as the monster) from 1940. Son of Frankenstein was also the first film in the franchise to reach over 90 minutes in length. Reply Doc October 10, 2012 I like the one of the good doctor lighting the monster’s cigarette for him. Boy, the AMA would be pissed! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published. Name* Email* Website Comment Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
