Now we're talkin! Yeah baby! Whoo-hoo!

What we have here is every monster kid's fantasy - the Bride of Frankenstein unwrapped! Can you believe your own eyes? Stop drooling down your shirt and place your hands back on your keyboard please. Ready for the story behind this titillating pic?

This was a photo that was kept under wraps (pun intended) for the past 71 years. It was only recently that this pic was finally exposed (pun intended) . The story goes that someone at Universal discovered this pic in the Universal archives back in 2005. It was apparently a picture that Jimmy Whale had shot as a private gag during the 1935 filming of Bride Of Frankenstein. What's even more surprising than the picture itself is that Elsa Lanchester agreed to the whole idea! The montage of Frankenstein monsters that you see along the border of the pic was added much later as an artistic effect. What's even more startling is that you are now beginning to believe this story! It just goes to show you - don't believe anything that you see or read on the internet. But do believe this - Elsa Lanchester in this photo is one hot-looking monster! This we can agree on. Everything else is just useless information that can only be enjoyed on this blog!

Is that another bolt, or are you just happy to see me? Don't pull that lever, or something might explode! How dirty do you want these, Terry? Fun picture!

Considering that Elsa Lanchester worked as a nude figure model, it's not all that surprising... ;)

You had me going there for a while with that Whale theory. LOL
Seeing the pic I now wish he had done this for the movie ;-)

I'd like to see you back up that accusation with some evidence! Seriously! I would!

I always wondered why the MONSTER walked that way. I can hear him screaming,"It's Alive,It's Alive".
Who's next? Dracula's daughter,or maybe the Mummy's mommy. lol
