#FRANKENSTEINFRIDAY: BEHIND YOOOOU!! Next time you happen to be tucking into your Barbacoa Romana nice and cripsy crust at Whitstable's Pizza Express, take a look at the wall behind you...!
#FRANKENSTEINFRIDAY: WHEN MICHAEL GWYNN (above) in Hammer films, 'The Revenge of Frankenstein' (1958) played the disfigured Karl, most of the character's frightening characteristics, the twisting and contorting features, the crooked legs and stance, by contorting his own body. Even though in the original make up tests carried out by Phil Leakey, then plan was for him to have a disfigured nose, a rough wig and .....a right cheek, of what looked like raw sausage meat! After Christopher Lee's appearance in 'The Curse of Frankenstein' which, in Lee's own words, 'looked like a car crash'...with everything bar the kitchen sink thrown in, Gwynn's no nonsense scare scowl was a refreshing and convincing change.
AND ON THE SUBJECT of The Revenge of Frankenstein make up, on the left, Peter Cushing in a make up continuity reference photograph, revealing the bruises, cuts and breakages from the Baron's mega duffing from the hospital patients...now, there's gratitude for you! While on the right, even though Eunice Grayson doesn't perhaps receive the same acknowledgement and exposure, as other Hammer Frankenstein actresses, in this rare early publicity. . . she's not too shy of exposing, some of her 'pieces effrontes feminines'! That surely would have got Frankenstein in a flap!
