Poor Joseph Cotten, now regulated to European horror films for money, plays the father in a brief yet competent performance. And a whole lot more! Tania fully realizes the womanly power she holds and expertly utilizes it to easily put Charles into a love-trance so profound that he's actually willing to have his brain transplanted for her. Also starring Joseph Cotten The Third Man as Baron Frankenstein. He is the star attraction but gone before the film really kicks into a gear. She is paired with Joseph Cotten, who plays the famous Baron in one of his many horror appearances in Europe at the tail end in his career.
The film ends somewhat abruptly with one of the hasty resolutions very common in the 1970s. The chief inspector is played by none other than cult actor Mickey Hargitay. Score: 6 out of 10 This is clearly the superior of the two films that Paul Morrissey filmed at Cinecitta studios Rome during the early 1970s. The American version is only 85 minutes, cut down from the original 96 minutes. Instead, we see this theme manifested in his daughter Tania, who longs to learn more about medicine, transplants, and creation. In the meantime Bay's noticed that dad's assistant Paul Muller has taken a shine to her for years. What struck me most was the atmosphere of the film , which makes you feel as though you were living in that very village and castle , among those people each of whom seems to want to hide something.
Soon it comes after Marshall and the doctor's daughter. The movie stars Joseph Cotten, Rosalba Neri, , and Mickey Hargitay. This is closer to being an eerie melodrama than horror flick. Although the creeping sound effects and nagging music score really did give me an almighty headache. I'm gonna be on the look out for the longer version, but the 85 minute version is fine as is. This is all extremely silly, but the actors are committed enough and if you like vintage B horror films, you might like this.
In the 1971 production, now available in a handsome, fully loaded Blu-ray edition from Nucleus Films encoded for Region B, Dr. Lady Frankenstein does this as well, and brings a new aspect to the table: medicine. Supporting actors Producers , Studio Shout! Mushnick in Roger Corman's Little Shop of Horrors, directs this somewhat interesting yet wholly twisted tale of Dr. If applicable, we will notify you about this before processing your order. Dick was an astute film broker, a sharp businessman with a great sense of humour. Worth seeing mostly for Kier's presence. He is truly great here.
I would have done the same thing, of course; what red-blooded man could possibly resist her? For example, would you believe this was directed by Mel Welles, best remembered as Mr. I admit that I'm not a big fan of Frankenstein. This could be attributed to the increasing social importance placed on science and medicine as both fields advanced further. The two fall in love and attempt to transplant Marshall's brain in to the muscular body of a retarded servant Stephen,in order to prolong the aging Marshall's life. Meanwhile, the first monster seeks revenge on the grave robbers who sold the body parts used in its creation to Dr.
Even in the nude, when other genre actresses go into autopilot, become passive, timid, or giggly, even then she stays in control. Mel Welles directed the film with the help of Aureliano Luppi, who went uncredited. The loopy plot is silly as all get out, but it's all executed well. It's a step beyond anything Hammer attempted in this genre, especially regarding gore and dodgy accents! It's a good thing too because I can't see Joe Cotton pulling off asphyxiation and orgasms quite like Ms. Now, all Tania has to do is put Charles's brain into Thomas' body and voilà! The supporting cast does a great job as well with a special salute to Herbert Fux as a slimy graverobber. Probably more than in any other of her movies, Neri stays dressed here. When she is speaking about her time in medical school, she mentions the hardships she experienced as a woman in the field.
See Lady Frankenstein like never before, stunningly resurrected from the original negatives in a brand new 2K restoration. Mostly it was my being a woman. The next day, Tania Frankenstein comes to visit her father. The answers, I suppose, depend on your interpretation of female empowerment. She is also very open with her performance if you catch my drift.
Well, the film starts out as a standard Frankenstein flick with Dr. Tania explains that she hopes to assist her father with his latest work and eventually do similar work of her own, although Baron Frankenstein protests. Ultimately it is revealed that Charles profoundly loves Tania, even though he's much older than her. She is young, eager, and ready to explore all possible positions in the monster world. What probably makes this film most worthwhile, are both the wonderfully Gothic, and sometimes genuinely creepy atmosphere, and the delightful insanity that is maintained throughout the film. Those interested in what Hollywood is churning out today will probably find this feature bland, scare-less, and choppy, but I challenge you to watch this at least once.
The film is not very violent, and for early 70s exploitation there is very little gore, but it is quite sleazy occasionally. The script was written by Edward di Lorenzo and is considered to be his greatest artistic achievement. Or, on the other hand, why she didn't want to use the body of the detective, partly since he was played by Hargitay, and partly because he was always snooping around talk about two birds with one stone. Either way, the scenes between him and the criminal were very good, again, because of their class differences. Even if it means taking Mary Shelley's classic monster tale and updating the story with a feminist twist. In the meanwhile, the super-potent stable-hand Nicholas Joe Dallesandro has sex with every female that crosses his way. She appeared in other Euro-trash productions from the same time such as Slaughter Hotel but in this film she is definitely given a more prominent role.
Joe Dallesandro is on screen a lot but his character doesn't contribute much to the plot. The young actors playing the kids do a good job. Technician Peter Sharpe steals the crystals, but he doesn't notice that the powerful X-ray has revived a green fungus. The baron mistakes Dallesandro's virginal possibly gay friend as him, cuts his head off and eventually puts together a male creature, in an effort to mate his two subjects. However, the standard Frankenstein lightning storm sequences are completely lame. Meanwhile, his dissatisfied wife Katherine Monique Van Vooren has the ever-so-studly Joe Dallesandro whose New York accent is way out of place to fulfill her sexual needs. At that time , nothing interested me more than Rosalba Neri's outstanding appeal to the senses , though I was still a young boy - this shows the extent to which Rosalba's beauty could be really something very special.
