Frankenstein Week! - Friday


Frankenstein is blue because this is the last official Frankenstein Week posting.
More Halloween posts coming soon. Anybody care about Phantom of the Opera? I mean the cool old Lon Chaney rotting skull head looking guy, not the cheesy half-masked Broadway ballad-singing sad sack.

You'd love the orginal, and historical illustrations in Frankenstein: A Cultural History by Susan Tyler Hitchcock. I loved what she said about why the image of his flattened head persists, even though the orginal description depicts Frankenstein's monster as a bundle of pallid parts.

To me, today's Frank has an almost tiki feel (somebody hand me a cocktail...).

Phantom pictures? Delicious. I myself am also partial to the crazy bird look of the Phantom of the Paradise.

I love your shot at the half-masked quasi-Fabio phantom image. The nose-missing-bad-hairline Chaney version is the goods for me!

Thank you for sharing!

Murderously Yours,

JEREMY

Lon Chaney's face is a great idea!
