#Getthecushionitscushing...SUNDAY !: Baron Frankenstein in 'Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed' (1969) has been over the years, singled out by critics and fans alike as Cushing's most his most evil and vicious portrayal of the Baron. 'Destroyed' presents us with a black-mailing, murdering, lying and cruel twisted monster. And yet...and yet, come the climactic ending of the film, we are praying for his escape, and hoping he 'gets out of this one'!
ON SEEING THIS FILM for the first time in the early 70's, this scene really did have me on the edge of my seat. The panic in the score, the hopeless situation that Frankenstein finds himself trapped in, the fire, poor Freddie Jones, Veronica Carlson, and Simon ward ... Ward's escape, a missed opportunity in a sequel, if ever there was one... this scene has it all. Rates as NUMBER THREE in my all time fav Cushing Frankenstein scenes. Ok. You can come out from behind that cushion, when he music stops....!
