Richard Kiel As Frankenstein's Monster On "The Monkees" (1967) (video)

7'2" Richard Kiel had already done a number of mostly small roles...

...before appearing with "The Monkees" (1967) as a Frankenstein-like monster.

The episode was titled "I Was a Teenage Monster."

Of course, he would later achieve worldwide fame as James Bond's nemesis, "Jaws."

But aside from a Monster-like turn on "The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew" ten years later...

...this was as close as he would ever come to playing Frankenstein's Monster.

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