The Curse of Frankenstein (1957)

I watch the Warner Brothers 1957 The Curse of Frankenstein on Svengoolie. It was the first Hammer Horror film to be in color. It is loosely based on the 1818 novel by Mary Shelley. It was directed by Terence Fisher (British film director known for his Hammer films) and stars Peter Cushing (mainly known for his Hammer films and his role as Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars) as Baron Victor Frankenstein

and Christopher Lee (who mainly played villains is known for Dracula in the Hammer films, Scaramanga in The Man with the Golden Gun, Count Dooku in Star Wars, and Saruman in Lord of the Rings) as the Monster. Robert Urquhart (mainly known for British television) plays Frankenstein’s tutor and mentor, Dr. Paul Kempe. Hazel Court (appeared in episodes of Bonanza, Danger Man, Thriller, Rawhide, The Twilight Zone, Mission:Impossible, McMillan & Wife, etc.) is Elizabeth and

Paul Hardtmuth (appeared in German films) as Professor Bernstein. The musical score is by James Benard (British film composer that mainly worked for Hammer films). For more information on the movie see Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.

I liked this movie, I will give it 4 out of 5 stars.

…such a thing could only result in evil!
