Dwight Place, Wrong Time

Mister Frye was a credit to crime
When defiling the dead was sublime
On a mad doctor's staff
He did bad for a laugh
With a style way ahead of his time.

Dwight Frye brought a macabre humor to grave situations. Pictured: Ernest Theisinger as Dr. Pretorius, Ted Billings as Ludwig, and Dwight Frye as Karl in Bride of Frankenstein (James Whale; 1935).
