Fry Me to the Moon

"A torch," Fritz opined, "is a treasure.
To scorch a behind is sheer pleasure.
Searing rears till they smart
Is so dear to my heart,
To torture is my kind of leisure."

David Cairns

Hunchback Fritz enjoys making the Monster's new life miserable: Dwight Frye and Boris Karloff in Frankenstein (James Whale, 1931). Don't play with matches on Dwight Frye-days.

Frye was a great actor who died far too young.

Agreed! We love him. It's always a thrill to discover his performances, even in a bit part.
