Pre-Karloff Frankenstein-Poster

frankenstein

Ich liebe dieses sehr frühe Promo-Poster für Frankenstein, das offensichtlich gestaltet wurde, bevor das Creature-Design feststand und noch bevor Karloff überhaupt an Bord des Films war, hier sollte noch Bela Lugosi Frankenstein (nicht das Monster) spielen und überhaupt: Frankensteins Monster als Gigant mit Laseraugen, aaaaaw! Snip von Frankensteinia:

Frankenstein was turned over to director Robert Florey who wrote a script with Garrett Fort and, in mid-June, directed the infamous, now lost screen test with Lugosi as The Monster. Lugosi balked at playing the mute, makeup-heavy character, but he was still attached to the project after James Whale replaced Florey. News of Lugosi being “switched” to Murders in the Rue Morgue surfaced in mid-July, but his replacement, Boris Karloff, was not named until late August when the film began shooting.
