Mastermindless



Niemann's ranting, he's plainly demented
A transplanting of brains he's invented
Franken-giants have cringed
At this science unhinged
An "advance" that leaves craniums dented.

Mad Doctor Gustav Niemann (Boris Karloff ) drives the narrative in House of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton, 1944), ably assisted by the hunchback Daniel (J Carrol Naish). Title mastered by David Cairns.

The hunchback servants in these films, while dimwitted, are always devoted to their masters.

Up to a point, yes. After that, anything goes.
