LIONEL ATWILL LURKS HERE
Triple Feature!
SON OF FRANKENSTEIN / FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN / MAN MADE MONSTER
SON OF FRANKENSTEIN
1939, Universal, 99 min, USA, Dir: Rowland V. Lee

The third atmospheric installment in Universal’s FRANKENSTEIN franchise and inspiration for Mel Brooks' YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN finds Henry Frankenstein’s grown-up son, Wolf (Basil Rathbone), returning to the family estate with his wife and son (Josephine Hutchinson and Donnie Dunagan) after many years. The laboratory is in ruins - nevertheless Wolf soon becomes enmeshed in his family’s nefarious legacy when he finds the dormant monster (Boris Karloff) being looked after by a vengeful gallows survivor, the crook-necked Ygor (a very creepy Bela Lugosi). Universal was firing on all cylinders with its bolt-necked creature when it released this exceptionally entertaining tall tale. Watch for Lionel Atwill as the one-armed police chief (he lost his missing appendage to a previous encounter with the monster).


FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN
1943, Universal, 74 min, France/USA, Dir: Roy William Neill

Cursed to turn into murderous beast with every full moon, Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.) heads for Frankenstein’s castle, hoping its secrets can bring an end to his misery. Instead, he finds the scientist’s titular creation (Bela Lugosi) encased in ice. Penned by writer Curt Siodmak, this first meeting of the Universal movie monsters includes appearances by horror stalwarts Lionel Atwill, Dwight Frye and Maria Ouspenskaya.


70th Anniversary!

MAN MADE MONSTER
1941, Universal, 59 min, USA, Dir: George Waggner

In one of his first horror roles, Lon Chaney Jr. plays a man whose immunity to electrocution attracts the interest of two scientists - one of whom (Lionel Atwill) hopes to use the discovery to create an army of electrified killers. A shockingly effective B-movie!


Screening formats: 35mm (SON OF FRANKENSTEIN and FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN) and DVD (MAN MADE MONSTER)
