WHAT KATY DID AFTER HER EVIL STINT AND VERY GRIM FIGURE IN FRANKENSTEIN AND ITS NOT FROM THE LAB!


#GETTHECUSHIONSUNDAY! Here's pretty neat, large hi res photograph, taken by the publicity stills camera man. This would have been cropped out by the magazine or newspaper editor. But if you look carefully, as well as the lovely Katy Wild in this shot on the back lot set of Cushing's 'The Evil of Frankenstein' at Bray studios, the Baron appears to live quite close to a 1960's railway line... and the large 1964 Bedford truck top right, maybe keeping the engine running, to give the Baron, his goods and chattels a quick get away maybe?


A QUESTION on the PCASUK FACEBOOK FAN PAGE TODAY promoted the banner above, after posting the Katy Wild behind the scenes photograph, from 'THE EVIL OF FRANKENSTEIN'


EDWARD MORLEY asks: 
'Wasn't she an actress from 'The Horror of Frankenstein' and later moved to Australia? I am sure she was in a mini series called 'Spy Force'. A really lovely actress'.


WE ANSWERED:
'You are right, Edward. Katy appeared in Spy Force as Lieutenant French! The series, as you say was Australian and ran for two series. Actress Kate O'Mara appeared in 'The Horror of Frankenstein' (1970) with Ralph Bates and Veronica Carlson, sadly no Katy though. I've posted some items from the series and two pics of her, in a banner for you above....


EDWARD REPLIED: 
'Oh Wow! Thank you so very much for the update and info. Just so many wonderful actresses and hopefully still with us. 


AND FINALLY, a post that prompted much laughter at the PCASUK FACEBOOK FAN PAGE yesterday . . .The next time you are watching Peter Cushing's second installment in the Hammer films Frankenstein series, 'The Revenge of Frankenstein' . .. take a look at the REAL monster sitting in the corner of the room, during the meeting of the medical committee. Those who say the film didn't really have a monster, need to feast their eyes on THAT lump of plaster, that I think is trying to allude to the Greek Venus de Milo by one, Alexandros of Antioch . . . I have a feeling this one was created in ten minutes at the Hammer carpentry and plaster shop by the great 'Bert of Cheswick', after a liquid lunch at the local hostelry just outside Bray studios! I almost feel like shouting 'Behind YOU!' to Cushing! BLIMEY! . . .N.B Many of you also mentioned that this 'statue' also appears almost five years later, in Hammer films, THE GORGON (1964), in the foyer entrance of Castle Borksky!
