Waking Up Is Hard To Do

Once the Monster was hot, number one
Now ensconced on a cot he's no fun
Not much more than a prop
Or some door's giant stop;
Unresponsive, his plot nearly done.

Dr.Mornay (Lénore Aubert) and Count Dracula (Béla Lugosi) examine the comatose Monster (Glenn Strange) in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Charles Barton; 1948). In his last films, the sadly diminished monster no longer acted, but was acted upon.
