Mystery Film Clip From "Ghost Of Frankenstein" (1942) (video)

At the climax of "Ghost Of Frankenstein", Ygor's brain has been transplanted into the Monster's skull...

...but this results in blindness for the Monster.
He goes on a rampage, and dies a fiery death in the blazing laboratory.

A photo exists of the scorched Monster outside the burning house.
It was thought to be simply a posed publicity still.  However...

...on a 1959 episode of "The Steve Allen Show", a joke montage featured this mysterious clip.
It's actual film footage of the Monster staggering away from the burning building.

Is this part of an entirely different ending that was filmed, but never used?

(Thanks to Don Glut for finding this)

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

Could be or maybe part of a publicity footage.
