Rondo Remembers: The Frankensteins

There was never as much excitement as when I saw in the TV GUIDE that the upcoming Saturday night horror movie (on CREATURE FEATURE, Channel 5 for me) was a Universal Frankenstein movie. The build up and excitement for my first time viewings of these was over-the-top. The other kids in the neighborhood thought they were cool, but that just didn't seem enough for me! This was real thrills, excitement.

Some of the greatest moments for me are still in my brain like freeze-dried food re-energized years later. In THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935) when Karloff is first seen in the water below the burning mill. The sparks and hot embers flying through the air as Henry and Fritz look on in the watch tower from FRANKENSTEIN (1931). The long awaited all-out battle between monster and werewolf in FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN (1943); equipment toppling, the flood water crashing. These moments are still explosions of Monster Kid emotion deep within me.

I didn't see them in proper sequential order. With help from articles in FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND magazine, I was slowly able to piece the flow of events through the films. Plus, I got to know the monsters. Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr., Bela Lugosi and Glenn Strange.

And that finale of the series! ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948) was viewed on a Sunday afternoon. Noon time on Sundays meant Abbott & Costello films. I love all of that team's movies...but I was waiting, waiting for that ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN. There I was in front of the Zenith black and white TV on the rolling cart. Cross-legged on the floor. I watched as the monsters all rallied with Bela Lugosi's Dracula running the show. But the moment that totally embedded itself in my cranium was the Frankenstein Monster plodding down the dock towards A&C. They were trying and trying to "untie the boat" and get away...but the monster (Glenn Strange) kept coming.

These movies are just the tops and I was never so keen with anticipation to see them. I don't think those childhood remembrances will ever be eclipsed.
