Glenn Strange again
Funny how Glenn Strange was one of the later actors to perform as Frankenstein's monster, yet his likeness was the one usually found on monster toys and memorabilia from the 60's on. Personally I feel Boris Karloff is the quintessential monster, but Glenn was next as far as how the monster looked. Unfortunately the scripts he acted in as the monster gave him little to work with. But he looked very cool doing it!
I'm also surprised at the affinity a lot of fans still have for his portrayal. Perhaps it's because of his image being the one on the toys they collected and played with in their youth. All I know is he's a lot of fun to paint!
