When Mrs. Brant and her friend see the picture of Frankenstein and Brant in the newspaper, you can tell it is a recent paper from 1969 when the movie was made, and not the 1800s time frame. Although the news articles are in German, you can easily see words like "American President Nixon."

However, they have been restored in all VHS and the 2004 DVD release. These scenes also appear in the UK prints of this film which were never cut. See more
