Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed 1969 article

From issue #14 of Castle of Frankenstein, (see the cover here, from a previous post on another blog) published in 1969, comes this short preview of the next Hammer sequel "Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed."
(Click on images to enlarge.)
In the publicity still above, we see a good example of the sneaky "Cushing Grope," a maneuver he often makes with his bosomy co-stars. Watch for it every time he "assists" a female costar... he subtly moves his thumb into direct contact with the starlet's breast! Peter, you sly old dog you. I wonder how many of them noticed it? If you look for it in his films, you will see it as a signature move.

Below, another page from the same issue, on a previous entry in the Frankenstein series of films.

A classic, indeed, Vincent! My second favorite Hammer "Frankenstein" film, after "Revenge".

on the topic of frankenstein, i have recently posted pictures of a short animated stop motion film i am working on, it is a rough frankenstein design, although its design is more cartooney, and may be the first time frankenstein has had eye brows?

anyway, i will also be posting the animation when its finished, which will be some time in october. you can see it at my blog at http://uglyvisions.blogspot.com/
