Tales Of Frankenstein Stills

Here's a tasty little piece from a lesser known Hammer TV show from 1958 with an awesome title card, "Tales Of Frankenstein" that never really reached full development despite the fact that it featured Anton Diffring and that "other" monster guy, Don Megowan!!!

The narrator's mug shot was culled from Universal's "Inner Sanctum."

And this scene without a doubt, will be all too very familiar to any Universal fan!!

I've always liked the looks of the Don Megowan Frankenstein monster!!

Classic Anton Diffring is quite acceptable as the Baron Frankenstein!

Lovely Helen Westcott is Frankie's love interest Christine!

Sci-Fi writing couple and dynamic duo, Henry Kuttner and C.L. Moore wrote this tale which adds some real class, but any credit for the pretty dang cool music is like impossible to find!

Probably the bottom line is, this Curt Siodmak directed pilot was just a little too brainy for 1958 TV, but it sure is something you can appreciate 50 years later!!

Don't look in the mirror, boy!! Do not look in the mirror!!!
