From the ledge hapless villagers fall
From their heads the blood spills where they sprawl
But the guy never harms
The small fry in his arms
Why drop dead for a silly old ball?
The Monster (Lon Chaney Jr) climbs a roof to retrieve a ball for little Cloestine (Janet Ann Gallow): The Ghost of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton; 1942). David Cairns dropped off the title.
