I think we all knew today was going to be Monstrous Monday. At least, anybody who gives any thought to my silly blog knew it. Anybody who did not think about it is probably not surprised. No matter. On with the monsters!
This is from Bedlam, starring the marvelous Boris Karloff. It is only a monster movie in a people-are-the-worst-monsters sort of way. It is really an excellent flick. I highly recommend it.
OK, here is a real monster, two in fact. Bride of Frankenstein is billed as “The Monster Takes a Mate,” but it isn’t really much of a love story.
Here is another shot from the same picture, just because I love Una O’Connor. The other person in the picture is of the monstrous variety, Ernest Thesiger as Dr. Pretorius.
Here is a better view of the lovely Elsa Lanchester. I love her especially in the introductory scene, as Mary Shelley. “She is an angel!”
And here is one more of Karloff looking more like Karloff. I don’t know what movie it is from. I had thought Arsenic and Old Lace, but he was not in the movie. Perhaps it was a publicity shot from the Broadway show.
At last I am over 200 words! Happy Monday, everyone!
