Make-up artist Harry Thomas has said that when he was given the assignment to make a mask for the "monster", he was not told that the monster was to be a female, so he made the mask to be a male. By the time he was notified that the monster was to be a female, the mask had already been done, and there was no money in the make-up budget left to do another one. Thomas claims that director Richard E. Cunha's alleged statement giving Paul Stanhope credit for the make-up is false, as Thomas was the film's only make-up man. Thomas also discredits Cunha's claim that he wanted Jack P. Pierce to do the make-up, as Pierce was notorious for taking a long time to apply his creations. Thomas claims the gender problem of the monster would never have occurred if the filmmakers had bothered to give him a $2 copy of the script. See more »
The scene where the monster first "steps" out of the house, "she" rips the curtain rod down and breaks the window panes in the door before yanking it open to make "her" escape. In the scene where Trudy opens the door, seeing the monster for the first time (as it was returning) the curtain rod, glass and door are undamaged. See more »
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.

Well, words are hard to come up with to describe this routine premised monster film of the 50's. A descendant of the late Victor Frankenstein, his son Oliver to be exact, is hiding his identity and working as a lab assistant for a kindly scientist. The scientist is working on something beneficial to mankind, whilst his assistant secretly works his own experiments on his benefactor's niece. These experiments hideously disfigure her face and cause her to walk the streets scaring people at night. But soon we see that all this is really secondary to Oliver's real plans of recreating life...keeping the family tradition alive so to speak. With the aid of a disgruntled gardener related to Igor(or someone like that), Ollie and friend end up killing people and fusing dead body parts with the end result being the creation of a barely woman-like played by man being. Ollie is not just worried about creating life, however. He is a randy sort of chap who has the hots for the delectable niece and then her also delicious friend, played by playmate Sally Todd.
The rest of the film is how he is discovered by the niece and her boyfriend, with some implausible and disgusting music sequences thrown in. The acting is decidedly over the top by most concerned. Donald Murphy terrifically hams it up as Ollie. John Ashley is painful to watch as the boyfriend. Saying he has limited acting ability would be an understatement! Notwithstanding the complicated, highly ridiculous plot, the hammy performances, the cheap sets, the bizarre make-up, this is a fun one to watch. It grabs you early, has some fun sequences, and some lovely, lovely heavenly bodies to feast your eager eyes on.
