A Word From Our Monster

The monster, jut-browed and big booted
Is to consonants loudly ill-suited
The test audience howls
At his messed-up, flawed vowels
In response to this crowd he gets muted.

Cutting Room Floor Plans

In the script, Bela's part had been speaking,
But was snipped through the art of sneak-peeking
With his accent too thick
He was cut to the quick
His lines stripped due to heartless critiquing.

Surly Hack

After negative previews, Béla Lugosi's dialog was cut from Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943).
