Who Played The Classic Universal "Frankenstein" Monster? (1931-1948) (video)

Boris Karloff created the role of the Monster in 1931's "Frankenstein."

Karloff repeated the role in "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935)...
...and "Son of Frankenstein" in 1939.

"Ghost of Frankenstein" (1942) gave us a new Monster in Lon Chaney, Jr.

Bela Lugosi played the Monster in "Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man" (1943)...
...with the help of stand-ins such as Gil Perkins and Eddie Parker.

"House of Frankenstein" (1944) introduced Glenn Strange in the role.
Strange returned in "House of Dracula" (1945), the last serious entry in the series...
...and finally in the comedy, "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein" (1948).

Karloff will always be generally considered as the best actor in the role.
Glenn Strange also made the character his own and is still highly popular.

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