Pulp Fiction Thursday: Son of Frankenstein

I love the Frankenstein movies made by Universal during the 1930’s. Oddly enough, Son of Frankenstein was the first one I ever saw, and it remains my favorite of the Karloff as the monster flicks. What’s not to like? It features three of the greatest big screen villains of all-time in Rathbone, Karloff, and Lugosi as well as Lionel Atwill’s cop character with the crazy wooden arm. It’s obvious that Mel Brooks loves it too: many of the funniest characters and bits in Young Frankenstein are drawn from the Son.

Here’s the lobby card for your amusement. Time for me to re-arrange my hump…
