Gamera977 This may be the most awesome movie poster ever… sandra At first glance, the Cyclops’ nostrils look like eyes. Beckoning Chasm Was the cyclops also in Ship of Monsters? He looks awfully familiar. Gamera977 He does look a lot like the one in ‘SoM’ Ken_Begg He’s one of the cast of awesome monsters in Ship of Monsters. In fact, he’s probably the most boring one! Ken_Begg Yes, same costume. Rock Baker I really wish more of these pictures had been imported to the States. This color stuff from the 70’s was a natural for UHF television! Eric Hinkle Santo and the Blue Demon versus Frankenstein (how did they ever get around copyright with that name?), the Wolf Man, the Vampire, a Mummy (Aztec or Egyptian?), and one weirdo-looking Cyclops? Talk about having your work cut out for you! I’d ask if they had a comic relief sidekick as well, but where would they find room for him? Eric Hinkle I just saw a frame from the movie that shows a business-suited El Santo, still sporting mask of course, kicking the Frankenstein Monster right in the throat. Yikes! El Santo didn’t fool around when he fought evil! Rock Baker The name of Frankenstein is in the public domain. Only the Universal design of the Monster is under restriction, though that’s more of a concern in English-speaking productions, it seems. Cullen Waters Shouldn’t that be “la mujer vampira?” I realize muher is the adjective on vampiro and that’s female (or if my memory’s right woman), but they’re still talking about a female vampire and not a male one. Eric Hinkle Okay, but their Frankenstein sure looks a lot like the one Jack Pierce and Boris brought to life for Universal. Or is Mexico one of those countries with a liberal view of copyright laws? Rock Baker Probably. Remember Batwoman?
