#MONSTERMONDAY! Seldom has Hammer films script-writer Anthony Hinds penned such wonderfully obnoxious characters as Anton, Karl and Johann, who appeared in Cushing's fourth Baron film, 'Frankenstein Created Woman' . . .
Their antics were really quite appalling, and managed to generate more than enough anger from the sympathetic audience, that when their grizzly ends did arrive in the story, it was surely felt, they well deserved it.. didn't they???
True Christina Kleeve was a little 'unhinged' . . . Weren't THEY the Monsters? YOU decide....
It took a little time for someone to crack it, but crack it, DON CUNNINGHAM did! The problem with the poster lies in the bottom RIGHT. A colour tinted image of SUSAN DENBERG as Christina Kleeve with KNIFE at the PICNIC about to MURDER . . . . KARL? If you are familiar with the story of the film, you'll know that Christina murders JOHANN at the picnic...not KARL, he was murdered at the Inn.
ABOVE: A SCREEN CAPTURE OF JOHANN AND CHRISTINA
ABOVE: A PUBLICITY STILL OF JOHANN AND CHRISTINA..
BUT HE ISN'T LOOKING FACE ON!
It appears that what the artist who made this poster wanted was a FACE ON shot of DEREK FOWLDS as Johann, as Christinia is about to plunge in the knife. It's either he did not have that particular photograph, or the press dept / distributor didn't make that photograph part of the KEY BOOK archive. So, they improvised. They took the image of Christina from the colour LOBBY STILL SET also featuring JOHANN, but looking away and replaced JOHANN'S head with BARRY WARREN'S . . . KARL! I guess no one noticed...until NOW!
