MORE MONSTER PORTRAITS

You can't get much more classic than this! Here's Glen Strange as you-know-who from 'Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.'  I was shown file cabinet bulging with vintage stills, but only allowed to select 20 to purchase before the rest were destroyed. This one was a must-have! You can read all about this occurrence in my new book, 'Sam Maronie Tripping Through Pop-Culture,' which is available soon. (c) Universal Studios

Our first installment of magnificent Monster portraits was such a hit that we’re back with another ghoulish grouping.!

Relax and enjoy our favorite terror titans in a more relaxed state, as they lift up their chins and show their best profile in the still photographer’s studio. you might never see them sit this still again! #smefunhouse @sammaronie

Bela! Bela! You just celebrated a birthday recently, so no better reason needed to feature you in our Monster Portrait feature. You could look menacing in a family picnic photo! This particular still is a publicity shot from the dreadful Monogram wartime creaker, 'Black Dragons.' Lugosi sure made a lot of stinkers, but he was ALWAYS interesting! (c) Monogram Pictures.

He hated being called a 'monster' star with a passion, but Basil Rathbone appeared in too many terror flicks to shake off that title. 'Son of Frankenstein,' 'The Black Cat,' 'The Magic Sword' and other fantasy films cemented him in that special niche forever. But then again, he hated being identified with his hugely popular 'Sherlock Holmes' series of films, too! This is an early-1960s management agency portrait of the English actor.
