Who's that Frankenstein?

Ahem, Frankenstein's *Monster*, of course.

The world is filled with all sorts of different Frankensteins. There are scary ones, friendly ones, animated ones, and live-action Frankensteins, too. For every man, a Frankenstein.

But, here's the thing: They can't all be played by the same guy. Some Frankensteins are taller than others, after all. So! We have prepared for you this quiz. In it, you'll be presented with the title of a movie. You'll then tell us which of the listed actors played Frankenstein's Monster in that particular flick! Good luck! And remember, if you don't get a good score, you'll have a pitchfork-wielding mob to flee from. No big deal!

Watch Svengoolie on MeTV!

Would love to see again Frankenstein (David Prowse) and the Monster from Hell. Just doesn't play anywhere and hard to find online. Saw it in the theatre in the 70's but haven't seen it since.

Was that from Hammer? I think they did seven each of Dracula and Frankenstein, and it sticks in my mind that one of the Frankensteins was very poorly received and is now hard to find.

9/10 Don't remember anything about The Monster Squad. Unsure if I have ever seen it.

Boris Karloff did play"The Frankenstein Monster"one more time..on an episode of"The Route 66"TV Show..Lon Chaney,Jr. played"The Wolfman" and "The Hunchback Of Notre Dame" on that show..Peter Lorre also appeared on that show..but? he didn't wear any monster make ups or costumes. He only wore a black top hat and cape and a dress suit.

Lorre didn’t need a costume to be creepy.

Lon Chaney,Jr. Would played "The Frankenstein Monster"again..in one scene in"A&C Meet Frankenstein"..when..poor Glenn Strange was unable to do the scene in the castle lab..due to an injured ankle. And he played "The Monster"again on an episode of"The Colgate Comedy Hour" on NBC TV With Bud and Lou.

Frankenstein 1970 is not correct. Karloff did not play Frankenstein's Monster in that, but only the scientist.

I think sometimes they put that kind of mistake in on purpose to give us something to talk about in the forums.

I've pretty much decided that Frankenstein is the name of both. The doctor because it's actually his name, and the monster because he took the name considering the doctor his "father". (As I understand it, a lot of slaves took the last names of their former masters after the Civil War because they considered themselves members of the family, or in some cases maybe it was just the only "last name" they were really familiar with).

#7 is wrong. Boris Karloff only played the monster in Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, and Son of Frankenstein. He refused to play the monster after that.

Wish MeTV will bring back The Munsters, although I do have the DVD's
ironman2000 Art1957 4 months ago
When I was kid, back when the Munsters was on CBS in it's first runs, I always thought the original Frankenstein monster was base on Herman. My father was livid about that, because when he was a kid the original Frankenstein monster played by Boris Karloff terrified him. I was never scared of Frankenstein monster because of Herman Munster.

How about in "The Bride (1985)"? The monster, here called "Viktor", is played by Clancy Brown; Sting plays Baron Frankenstein.

Also, a question I posted a couple of months ago for some reason that could be repeated here: which member of the Carradine family played Frankenstein in a movie (if it's any help, the film in question was produced by Roger Corman). Was it John, David, Keith or Robert?

You forgot Jennifer Beals as the bride! When she tells Sting "You didn't make me!", he snidely replies "As a matter of fact, I did!" As for your question, I'll guess John since he did a lot of horror!
daDoctah cperrynaples 4 months ago
Nope, not John (or "Richmond Reed", his real name which he used for his character in the movie "Vampire Hookers"). BTW, before getting associated with horror, he did a lot of westerns too, including the classic "Stagecoach".

So having eliminated Papa John, which of the three sons played Frankenstein? The one from Kung Fu, the one from Nashville, or the one from Revenge of the Nerds?

Nobody wants to try another guess?

I wish there was a way to mark spoilers on these boards, but I'll just go ahead and reveal the answer: David Carradine played "Frankenstein" in the movie "Death Race 2000". The film involves a cross-country car race where drivers are given extra points for killing pedestrians along the way. Carradine's character, initially seen in a full-head mask, is called Frankenstein because he supposedly had to be "put back together" after many crashes in multiple earlier races.
