Watery Grave Misdemeanor

He was dead for a spell, then revived
Of a head that works well was deprived
Though deep waters deter him
And they ought to inter him
This incredible fellow survived.

At the end of Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, the monster was engulfed in a flooding castle, and he must be thawed (again) in the next film in the series, House of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton, 1944): Boris Karloff is vengeance driven Dr. Gustav Niemann (center), J. Carrol Naish is the romantic hunchback Daniel (right), and Glenn Strange is the slumbering Monster. We will visit House when we return. Title by water boy David Cairns.
