Frankenstein Conquers the World
The heart of the Frankenstein monster is transplanted into an orphan who promptly blossoms into a gap-toothed giant with a flat head reminiscent of Karloff’s legendary creature. This so-called “Frankenstein” is one of Japan’s wackier anti-heroes; he does battle with a spiky critter known as Baragon, another in a long line of Toho’s rubber-suited behemoths. Nick Adams stars—it was the first of three Kaiju films for the actor—Godzilla‘s Ishirō Honda directed, and Eiji Tsuburaya, Toho’s special effects whiz, provided the fireworks.
