It was reported that the rubber headpiece used for the Frankenstein monster make-up was very uncomfortable for Lon Chaney Jr. to wear. It sat directly on his forehead and he constantly complained. Once he asked for it to be removed. Angry and frustrated when no one listened, he ripped it off himself, tearing open a bloody gash in his forehead. Production on the film was shut down for a couple of days. See more »
Ygor seems to have been able to have his teeth fixed since the end of The Son of Frankenstein although he has been sitting by the sulfur pit since the earlier film. See more »
Ghost of Frankenstein takes place after 1939's son of Frankenstein. this time the second son of Frankenstein(sir Cedric hardwicke)who is a mental health physician picks up where his brother left off.the monster(Lon Chaney Jr)and ygor(Bela Lugosi)seek him out for help.but the good doctors assistant(Lionel atwill)has other ideas.the beautiful Evelyn ankers plays Dr Frankenstein's daughter.Ralph Bellamy as her boyfriend. i would call this the weakest in the series but still very enjoyable. i actually love the whole universal Frankenstein series,after this there was 4 more;Frankenstein meets the wolfman(43)house of Frankenstein (44)house of dracula(45)and the comedy classic Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein(47)anyway i give ghost of Frankenstein 8 out of 10.a good universal b movie with a great cast.
