  1. Hi Jon,
    1. Those colorized posters for Bride of Frankenstein make Valerie Hobson look like she's portraying both Frankenstein's bride and the monster's mate, don't they? In one of the early script treatments, Elizabeth was supposed to be kidnapped and used to supply parts for the Bride.
    2. The slogan on the Mexican Brides of Dracula poster reads "Todas ellas se rindieron a su diabolica seduccion...pero ninguna logre besarlo...y vivir!", which Google Translate renders as "Surrendered all his diabolical seduction ... but none achieves kiss ... and live!"
    3. Looking forward to your remembrance of Cat People...
    4. I wonder why the colorist for the poster for Cat-Women of the Moon decided to color them pale green?
    5. If you think the stills from The Cosmic Monsters are boring, you should see the film!
    6. That is indeed the name of the man inside the Creature suit (whenever the Creature is in the water).
    Thanks!

  2. When I saw that explorer on the box for the "Crazy Creepy Critters!" I immediately thought Don Martin.
