From Pillar to Post Mortem

As a robber, you'd beat and you'd strangle
Hanged by mob, now your feet sadly dangle
Think it couldn't get worse?
Here's no-goodniks, perverse!
To these slobs, you're dead meat they can mangle.

Colin Clive and Dwight Frye in Frankenstein (James Whale; 1931). Title by frequent poster Donald B. Benson, who writes, "Pity the nameless criminal salvaged by Frankenstein and friend. Imagine coming back after death with a defective brain and a knack for getting repeatedly killed and resuscitated."
