Young Frankenstein? Film Noir?  Yes, its probably one of the funniest films ever made.  I'd love to have been a fly on the wall to watch these actors cracking up between takes.

He refused and threatened to walk.

Son of Frankenstein (Universal, 1939). Swedish. Artist Gosta Aberg delivered a terrifying, larger-than-life Monster (Boris Karloff) on this very rare Swedish poster from Son of Frankenstein. This was the third of Universal's Frankenstein films, and the last worthwhile entry before the series dissolved into sequels without the Karloff monster. At 51 years of age, Karloff was getting too old to deal with the eight hour makeup job by Jack Pierce. The previous two entries, Frankenstein and The…
