During the scene when Sandra Knight as Trudy Morton opens the door and faints because she is frightened by the monster, she falls to the floor. After she is supposedly unconscious she very obviously lifts her arm and places it on her hip. Then once the camera moves off her and returns she is in a completely different position than she was previously (she was originally on her left side with her back to the camera, and she's now shown on her back)!

Your father and grandfather never used a female brain.
Oliver Frank aka Frankenstein:
No. The way the female's brain is conditioned to a man's world. Therefore it takes orders where the other one's didn't.

Above Average entry in the so bad it's good category.
This is one of those pretty bad, but campy fun films from the 50's that filled double bills and entertained many of us as kids on t.v. chiller theater type shows.
Oliver Frankenstein is the mad descendant, who is treading in forbidden territory. He's got a mutant creature and is turning a young girl into a monster sporadically ala Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde. So you get a couple monsters for your time instead of just one. What a deal. His experiments are eventually discovered by the teen lovers played by John Ashley and Sally Todd. Harold Lloyd Jr. is in the film. By the way the monster creatures are obviously played by men in make-up.
It's a very low budget, cardboard set kind of film that is lots of fun if you're in the right frame of mind.
