Hi there, My big bro takes me to see Curse of Frankenstein with the immortal Christopher Lee in 57, maybe–I’m 6—and as a give-away they had masks of the monster with eye holes and an elastic band–I remember my brother wearing it after the movie and scaring the bajesus out of me, as up to that point it was the scariest image ever, followed shortly after by Mr Sardonicus, etc—anyway, my older brother doesn’t remember the mask and I’m sure I’m not misremembering –do you or any of your fans remember such a mask?–thanks, love your site—ghoulishly yours, Richie
I believe I found your 1957 mask and have tried several times to post links for you but my post aren’t showing up in the comment section.
Kids today arenâ€™t going to levitate over The Curse Of Frankenstein. Theyâ€™d likely say itâ€™s dull, slow, nothing happening — the customary branding iron applied to so many old movies, particularly horror ones, where explicit gore has been industry standard for going on, what, forty years?
The comments system is still defying chainman’s efforts, so trying Googling “Curse Of Frankenstein mask greenbriar”–without the quotation marks–and switch to the “Images” tab. There’s a nice excerpt from the theater chain’s manual displaying the “terrorific” “monster mask for the kids!”
chainman & Grokenstein,
Thanks! John said he’ll look into this issue. wordpress really stinks lately.
@Grokenstein Thanks for the secondary method. It didn’t occur to me I could use Google Images.
@unkle 100% agree about wordpress.
Looks like the problem has been fixed.
