HUNK OF THE MONTH - FRANK N. STEIN...



Luxuriant hair, dreamy eyes, strong features -
but that's enough about me.  Here's big FRANK
to set the pulses racing amongst female fans!

Maybe it's just me but I think Boris Karloff is the only one who can pull off that look - anybody else dressed as the Frankenstein monster just looks daft. Just think - in 3 or 4 years time we might have a Prime-Minister called Boris.

Bela Lugosi looked daft, Lon Chaney Jr. jutted out his jaw in an attempt to look more Karloffian (and did an honourable job, I think), and Glenn Strange looked okay when he was lit right. In fact, in some stills I've seen, he does look quite like Karloff to a degree. Interestingly, his Frankie would've towered over Boris's as he was a much taller man.

Yeah CJ's right, Boris is the only one who gives the monster range, that: menace and subtle naivety. Too much of Lenny about Chaney's version and Lugosi, although an extremely charismatic screen presence is just miscast.

As far as giving the monster range (and a soul) I'm in perfect agreement, DSE - I've said as much on this blog before. However, given the impossibility of the task, I feel that Chaney and Strange did better than expected, especially when portraying the monster as a huge, lumbering engine of destruction. Ironically, the increasing nature of that very quality being the very thing that drove Karloff from the part.
