Did You Know?


The Hulk was inspired by Frankenstein. In this episode, Hulk meets and old drunk hermit, an encounter reminiscent of the monster's encounter with an old blind man who shows him kindness. That scene was also included in the film Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and parodied in Young Frankenstein (1974). See more »


When the Hulk throws the bear backwards and the camera pans left, just before the scene cuts to another angle, we can clearly see a man sitting on an egg crate on the lake shore wearing Speedos. He is not a character from the scene and must be part of the production crew. We can also see an extra blue ripped shirt sitting with a strand of rope. Seen on Netflix. See more »

Good Sequel Film.
23 August 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Second outing for Bill Bixby as Doctor David Banner, now on the run after he is believed killed in a lab explosion, fleeing from the dogged pursuit of reporter Jack McGee, once again memorably played by Jack Colvin, and of course muscular Lou Ferrigno returns as the Hulk, who is more hero than monster, though uncontrollable.

Story has David helping disabled heiress Julie Griffith(played by Laurie Prange)who is being undermined by her manipulative, cold-hearted stepmother(played as such by Dorothy Tristan) Fine supporting actor William Daniels is more effective as her corrupt doctor, who is in on the plot. Gerald McRaney makes the first of four appearances, all as different characters(!) and is believable as the manipulated love interest of Julie. Plot is contrived, but entertaining, though climax with bear should have been trimmed...

Memorable ending sets up subsequent TV series quite well.
