  • A Good Movie But...

    Sure. I have watched this movie over and over again for over 30 years and I more than enjoy it each time.I have to use a lot of imagination though. Bela is a weak Frankenstein monster in almost every respect. He's to short, to stiff and his natural face can't be masked enough behind the make-up to make him look remotely like either Boris or Lon. The first half of the movie is the best as it is basically an extension of the original Wolf Man. From there the plot weakens. This is obviously an attempt by Universal to capitalize on the strength of these two main characters and make a quick buck. I can't help but think what might have been if they took a little more time indulging in the second have of the movies plot, spent a little more on sets and let Lon do double duty as both Wolf Man and Monster as was intended. It could have been a real spectacle instead of just a classic. A missed opportunity..

    This is Univeral Studios' fifth 'Frankenstein' film and the sequel to 1941's 'The Wolf Man'; interesting attempt to have a sequel to two different franchises at once. Originally Lon Chaney Jr. was supposed to play 'The Wolf Man' and Frankenstein's Monster (he had played the Monster in the previous Frankenstein film), but this was decided to be too difficult and costly so Bela Lugosi was cast in the part he refused back in 1931 as the Monster. The problem with this film is that Lugosi's part was edited so drastically after the film was completed it brings this movie down in a lot of ways. The Monster was supposed to be blind and talk in this film and was Lugosi was filmed that way, but the legend is test audiences laughed at the Monster speaking with a Hungarian accent so drastic editing took place removing all references to the blindness and wiping out the dialouge; you can still see Lugosi moving his mouth and nothing coming out in some scenes. The first half of the film deals strictly with 'The Wolf Man' and Lon Chaney Jr. turns in a very creditable performance, perhaps even better than in his intitial stint as the tormented Lawrence Talbot. Kids seem to love this one, but adults can enjoy it as well strictly from a nostalgic point of view.

    What a tremendous, atmospheric monster movie! One of the best scenes is the sight of Frankenstein's monster encased in ice. This movie kept me awake after seeing it as a boy...
