This approximately 9 minute short was taken from Universal's 1944 "House of Frankenstein" The first half of the film dwells on Count Dracula (john carradine) The second half concentrates on reviving the Frankenstein Monster(Glenn Strange). :Sidenote: Glenn Strange played the Monster in the last 3 Universal Horror Classics;The above mentioned 1944 "House of Frankenstein" 1945 "House of Dracula and the 1948 "Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein" Unlike Karloff's makeup for the 1931 "Original Frankenstein" 1935 "Bride of Frankenstein" and 1939 "Son of Frankenstein" done by legendary Universal Makeup Chief Jack Pierce; Strange's Makeup was done by Bud Westmore of the Famous Westmore Family. Strange was probably more well known in TV's GUNSMOKE as SAM the Bartender of the Longbranch Saloon.
Karloff's last appearance as the Frankenstein Monster was 1939's "Son of Frankenstein" In this Film he plays the evil Dr. Neamaude who has escaped from Prison with the hunchback Daniel(J.Carrol Naish) They end up taking over Lampini's horror show Wagon; eventually bringing both Dracula and the Monster back to Life... Unexpected ending for Karloff in this Universal Classic...Available in Super 8 Magnetic Sound as well as 16mm Optical Sound.It was a popular film among Castle Film Collectors...s.m.
