Re: Enter: Sf/f av contest:Hammer Time

Peter Cushing is always a great entry. Really, as Hammer's Frankenstein movies progress, it is the doctor who is far more the monster than any of his creations. He proceeds through his experiments with increasing callous disregard for morality, ethics, or consequences to anyone around in order to accomplish his goals. Cushing was an awesome Doctor Frankenstein.

This little article is a good tour of the good doctor's journey to villain and why Cushing stands out far more than any of the doctor's creations ever did at Hammer. The Hammer films became more about the lengths the baron would go to conduct his experiments rather than the beastie itself. http://www.totalcults.com/2011/11/fr...from-hell.html

Allow me a moment to go off topic, and say that Scott Brick's reading of the original Frankenstein Novel on Audiobook, is a truly memorable experience I had no idea the Book was so different from the B/W Versions I saw as a child.

Scott has a Dynamic voice, that delivers many different and distinct sounding characters as well as Jim Dale and Stephen Frye do the Harry Potter Audiobooks

That sounds good. Also, you can find radio show versions of Frankenstein and such online. The sound quality of the recordings isn't always the best, but the stories are often great fun. There are some fun shows here http://www.radiolovers.com/ and here http://www.oldradioworld.com/ and one more http://www.relicradio.com/otr/

^^I remember watching Gorgo with my Dad one afternoon and we were rooting for him, though a bit mad that he knocked Big Ben over.

Here's a grabber from Night of the Demon, 1957:
