Burning Cessation

At the wrap up they turn and they stare
They're two saps about whom I don't care
I could give rat's thigh
If they live or they die:
Because, trapped, Lon burns medium rare!

The Monster (Lon Chaney Jr) is being burned alive at the climax of The Ghost of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton; 1942). Who cares about the fate of the town prosecutor, Erik Ernst (Ralph Bellamy) and Elsa Frankenstein (Evelyn Ankers)?!?
