The makeup in the later film, Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman
really suffered, not like the stuff Bud Westmore put out earlier, the Wolfman looked like a shadow of his former self. Then again I don't think Westmore worked on FMTW, did he?

Anyone know this? But the makeup in "The Wolfman" will always be tops.

Little bit of info here: The last film Lon Chaney Jr. ever did (as far as can be recalled) was the 1971 Al Adamson cheese bomb Dracula VS. Frankenstein as a mute brute who does Dr. F's bidding whenever he takes the serum.

A band called The Creeping Cruds immortalized Lon Chaney Jr's Wolfman with a song called "Blood Moon" and a snippet of "Dracula VS. Frankenstein" can be heard at the beginning of their song " I Vampire."

They had to make changes to The Wolf Man's make-up in the later films because of a shortage of yak fur somehow due to the war.

And you're talking about Jack Pierce, not Westmore, right?

I don't think Westmore did the Wolf Man make-up until ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN.

I believe I am talking about Jack Pierce there, Superfry, and hey, it's good to hear from you again! You and I always had some good dialogue about the classic films. It's good to be back.

I remember seeing a Westmore name in the credits for The Munsters in later years. Great to see that Universal kept their own for the classic monsters.

Film 4 has been doing some classic horror in the last 12 months and it was great to see this again. Lon Chaney Jr, Claude Rains and Bela Lugosi all in the same movie is just a treat!

Yeah man, good to see you too. I never forgot the Superfry, you and me was a team, brutha! Looks like we got more people in here now though, and some serious talk about classic stuff. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Dracula VS. Frankenstein also had the benefit of some of the final appearances of a few other classic TV stars, including Angelo Rossito (of Tod Browning's 1930's classic "Freaks" ) and J. Caroll Naish, a big TV serial and movie star loo-ong before D vs. F.

And our uncle Forry, aka "The Ackermonster" also has a bit part in this deleted scene. get a load of Dracula's makup, LOL

This is also my favorite Universal monster movie.
