Great Minds Stink Alike

When you're adding Lugosi's mad mind
To the addled, sad monster you'll find
There's a nauseous resemblance
That causes remembrance
Of that baddie and blacksmith, crook-spined.

David Cairns with Surly Hack

Béla Lugosi plays The Monster in Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943). At the end of The Ghost of Frankenstein, the previous film in the series, the big guy received a brain transplant from Ygor, the former blacksmith with a broken neck, a character who was also played by Lugosi. Not confusing at all, is it?
