CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN...



More great RUSS JONES and JOE ORLANDO art for you,
cavortin' Criv-ites, in the shape of CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN.
Published in MONSTER WORLD #3 back in 1965, my only com-
plaint is that it isn't an adaptation of the 1931 BORIS KARLOFF
movie.  Oh well, can't have everything, I suppose.







And let's not forget the cover, below.

The likenesses of the actors in these is remarkable. The story loses some of its punch though when the eschew the frame story element and we don't get to see Frankenstein punished for his crimes. I watched this again not long ago and I was struck how successfully Cushing was in making Frankenstein a charmer but clearly a sociopath with no regard for other people. Dandy bit of acting, and a superior take to the classic Universal rendition which is a great film but offers up a wimpy Frankenstein.

In my opinion the Hammer film was much better than the 1931 original but neither was remotely like the novel.

I suppose it's arguable which is the better film, Rip & CJ, but I'd say the 1931 movie has the better monster - Boris Karloff! No one can compete.

Class indeed, CJ. Can't dispute that.

Kid, you mixed up us Jones boys in your last reply. By the way, remember when I sent you that comment which mysteriously never arrived - it turns out my tablet had for some reason switched my Google account to anonymous so you deleted my comment when it arrived. Now I check before I send a comment.

So I did. I must've panicked when I saw I was being invaded by the Jones boys. "Class indeed, AJ. Can't dispute that." is what I should've typed. Smart thinking to check your comments before sending, CJ, because I delete all anonymous comments without reading them. And even some with names attached get deleted if, three or four words in, they look as if they're getting a bit cheeky.
