Return of the Living Duds

Could a dam-burst dispose of this pair?
Or do hams decompose in thin air?
They'll revive in a sequel
And at drive-ins your shriek will
Be dampened by throes of despair.

David Cairns

Both the Wolf Man and the Monster survive the flood at the end of Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, and are revived by Dr. Gustav Niemann in House of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton, 1944). Western actor Glenn Strange takes over as the Monster, Boris Karloff is Niemann, and Lon Chaney Jr returns as  Larry Talbot, the Wolf Man.
