Fiends to the Bitter End

Telling Lon that he ought to be spayed,
Bela's Monster makes off with the maid
Next, the two of them tussle,
Flexing gruesome, hewn muscle,
Till, upon them, the waters cascade.

The stunt doubles of Lon Chaney Jr, Ilona Massey, and Béla Lugosi have at it in the climax to Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (Roy William Neill; 1943). Title by fiendishly clever David Cairns.
