If ever there was an immortal movie monster, it was Frankenstein, or more correctly Frankenstein’s monster. And of course the role of the monster was originally played by Boris Karloff who starred in scores of horror films.

I was happy to interview filmmakers Thomas Hamilton and Ron MacCloskey about Karloff and their film.
