My brain does not feel up to any Middle-aged Musings nor yet Mental Meanderings, so I went to Facebook and looked around for some pictures to share. Eventually I found my way to a page I like called Famous Monsters of Filmland. Who doesn’t like monsters? Oh, I know there are some that don’t, but I just imagine they were put off by today’s headline. I amused myself my downloading a few classics.
One of the most debonair of monsters is Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula. I’m thinking Dracula reached his height point of sexiness with Frank Langella in the 1970’s, but I never saw that movie. I’m just going by what I heard.
We go from sexy to shaggy with the Wolfman. I don’t know what movie or actor this is (I suppose real bloggers research these things and here we come to the ugly truth about me), but I liked him.
I can’t help by notice there is a dearth of good female monsters. The Bride of Frankenstein, despite being the title character, had an embarrassingly small part in a sequel. I find that a little sad, especially given that she was portrayed by the wonderful Elsa Lanchester.
And here is the Creature of the Black Lagoon. I think his body is scarier than his face, but that is one scary body. Official Julie Adams (who played the object of the Creature’s desire) is another page I like on Facebook. She seems to be a very gracious, classy lady.
I think I have used this photo before, but I wanted to close with Nosferatu, which gets my vote for the scariest movie ever. And I see I am approaching 300 words. I don’t think that is bad for a brain-dead Monday. I hope to see you all on Tired Tuesday.
