On occasion, I’ll update an old post if I come up with new and relevant information. Here are a couple of recent fixes…

• I found a wonderful snapshot of Famous Monsters editor Forry Ackerman and cover artist Basil Gogos posing with the original artwork for the Boris Karloff Tribute issue that I featured a couple of posts back, on February 2.

Go look!

Frankensteinia friend and guest blogger Marc Berezin — who wrote a fascinating review of the 1968 British ITV adaptation of Frankenstein with Ian Holm — reports that the episode, up ‘til now available only as a bootleg tape, is being officially released on DVD come March 23.

Here’s the Amazon UK link.
