The familiar image we have of Frankenstein's monster as played by Boris Karloff in 'Frankenstein' (1931) as been used so many times in TV and magazine adverts selling all manner of products and services etc. Here is one such advert that appeared in TV Times (18-31 December 1971) advertising Grandee cigars.

Anyone else have Frankenstein or any other classic monster magazine ads?

What an obscure delight and great that it can receive the light of day again!

There's real atmos there alright - it makes you wonder what's around the corner or just under the drain lid. Some scenes have all the feel of an event, or seem to be a source of several stories rather than just a rehash of particular cliche.

Another fine exhibit, sirs!
