100%! Do I know my horror actors or what? Shouldn’t be too hard figuring which actor performed in 1966 considering that Lugosi died in the Fifties.

The fog is the one that scared me when it came out years ago

That's a good one! Enjoy watching that. Seen it on video and then a few months later seen it again at the second-run movie theater.

Actually stuntman Eddie Parker played the Frankenstein monster on Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman in the scenes that were terribly strenuous. Bela was 61 when this film was made I believe.

When Lawrence Talbot finds the Frankenstein monster in the ice, that's Eddie Parker. You see him in many shots of the fight scene between the monster and the Wolf Man.

Very true. One can tell the difference in actors even through the make up in that scene especially.
Tresix BenSobeleone 5 months ago
Both actors had stunt doubles for that scene.

I mixed up the finale with another episode. Trying to be too smart!

I need to research both actors and their movies.

#11, "Black Friday," has BOTH Karloff AND Lugosi...and Karloff is the leading man, with Lugosi in a smaller supporting role. Somebody needs to correct this.

Just curious: Is this the movie for which a fan in Ed Wood called Lugosi "Karloff's sidekick"?
BenSobeleone cperrynaples 9 months ago
The fan was talking about the movie The Invisible Ray.
