Die Hardly

Ygor rises again from the grave
His demise was just feigned, a close shave
The cops are quite baffled:
He was dropped from the scaffold!
Better prise out the brain of that knave.

David Cairns

At the start of Son of Frankenstein, Ygor (Béla Lugosi) had survived hanging, and at the end he was shot repeatedly. And yet, like some broken-necked Looney Tunes cartoon character, was up to his usual mischief again in The Ghost of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton; 1942).
