Here's something I never saw at the Post Office -- because if I had, I would've snapped it up in a heartbeat! I hardly see these show up on eBay at all... I wonder if a second set was done with the other Universal monsters?
I honestly forget which of the Universal Frankensteins this is from... I've posted this photo in the Random Acts of Geekery before, and someone pointed out where it's from, but I can't find that entry now!
My notes had this as a French poster, but looking at it now, I think it's from Belgium! Hammer's take on a Frankenstein series, only carrying the Doctor through (and not the monster) was probably the smartest thing they did with their series.
War of the Gargantuas was the sequel to "Frankenstein Conquers the World" -- the Gargantuas were grown from the giant creature from the previous movie, which itself was grown from the irradiated heart of the Frankenstein monster!
Welcome to the Blog of Frankenstein, the latest of my blogs! Like the last two new blogs I've started, Dracula's Crypt of Collectibles and Go-Go Godzilla, this blog will feature, every day of the week, a photo of one Frankenstein-related item, and more often than not, these items will be things that have been offered for sale on eBay... so if you see something you want to add to your collection, look for it there!
You'll find photos, lobby cards and stills from all the Universal Frankensteins, the Hammer series, other studios (yes, even the Toho "Frankenstein Conquers the World")... plus toys and other collectibles! Sometimes I'll have something to say about them, sometimes I won't, and will just show the photo! I hope you'll stop by daily!
The inaugural image, seen above, is an Italian "Photobusta" (lobby card) for Son of Frankenstein!
The Blog of Frankenstein is your daily destination for vintage Frankenstein-related goodies, including posters, lobby cards, stills, toys, and other coolness! And yes, I know that Frankenstein was the doctor, and not the monster... but the term has become such common use thanks to toys and the like over the years that I don't have a problem sometimes using "Frankenstein" to refer to the monster.
I have been a Navy journalist, word processor, graphic designer, medical assisting student, cook, and truck driver, and am currently an eBay seller as well as an employee at a big retail store. I have been and always will be into comics, sf, tv, cartoons, monsters, oldies rock, and lots of other stuff.
