Lon Chaney's Live TV Blunder on "Tales of Tomorrow: Frankenstein" (1952)

When the television series "Tales of Tomorrow" presented their 1952 live adaptation of "Frankenstein", Lon Chaney played the Monster.

Unfortunately, he thought the live show was a final rehearsal. So instead of smashing the prop furniture, he picks it up and gently sets it back down.

(Later, perhaps as punishment, John Newland shoots him well below the belt.)

After discovering his mistake, Chaney was mortified. But otherwise, it's a perfectly good performance.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material. Just having some fun with it. Thanks for watching!
