An anonymous short story first published in 1818, but later in 1823 re published as being from the Pen of Miss Mary Shelley.... told the story of a scientist re animating a dead body made from various corpses. The Story was of course FRANKENSTEIN
It was many years later in 1931 that a British Actor Called William (Bill) Pratt would help bring the story to the silver screen with the help of Universal Studios. The then unknown actor Bill Pratt better known as BORIS KARLOFF played the MONSTER, a roll that made him one of the true masters of horror.
Standing at only 5 foot ' 11 the costume and make up artists worked their magic making Frankenstein's Monster appear to be over 7 foot tall.
Unfortunately no colour photographs survive of Karloff in his Monster costume.... which is a shame... because most people do not realise that the Monsters flesh make up was green. He was a rotting corpse after all.
Others would play the monster in years to come, but the flat headed Karloff look will always be considered the best.
Here we have Buddy as The Monster with no name. Remember Frankenstein was the name of the Doctor who created him...... NOT THE MONSTER
