The Monster : Ian Holm

Here, at last, is a good, sharp look at Ian Holm in his Monster makeup from the 1968 Frankenstein episode of the British Mystery and Imagination television series. Holm was also Dr. Frankenstein, playing up the Monster and Creator doppelganger theme. He would go on to tackle a third character in the Frankenstein saga, as the elderly Baron, father to Kenneth Branagh’s Victor in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994).

I previously posted a fine review of Mystery and Imagination’s adaptation of Frankenstein by Guest Blogger Marc Berezin. Marc will be returning to us soon with a look at Frankenstein on PBS’ kids series, Wishbone.
