    I've no idea what's going on with my blog but I did not see this reply til now. I'm so sorry, even not coming around often, you'd think I'd have notification sometime in the past three years.

    Anyway- many of these prints are now available online from poster shops and the like. Otherwise, if you print one up and tried to have it printed larger, or such, it would be at the discretion of the print shop and their attitude about copyrights and the like.

    Oh my- I am so sorry! I never saw this comment until now. I'm not on the forum much the last couple years, and I wasn't notified of it.

    In case you're still wondering, however- in the documentary, "She's Alive! Creating the Bride of Frankenstein" there's a discussion of the script, and how the original script had to be submitted like all films to a governing body, and several changes had to be made. For instance, they had to cut a number of minutes from the prologue scene so as to not show Elsa (as Mary Shelly) Lanchester's bustline.

    And there is a scene in which Doctor Pretorious is saying the following line:

    "Leave the charnel house and follow the lead of Nature - or of God if you like your Bible stories. Male and Female created He them. Be fruitful and multiply. Create a race, a man-made race upon the face of the earth. Why not?"

    But the original script called for "-if you beleive in fairy tales." And was deemed nearly blasphemy, and therefore changed. The documentary, which is included on a couple different BoF dvds, mentions more, and is well worth a watch if you can find it.

    I love archive.org too! So glad someone (that'd be you!) posted a link to it on HF.

    Just finished looking through your whole blog- really enjoying all the Halloween PR pics! If I ever come across Errol Flynn holding a jacko instead of a sword, I'll be sure to let you know

    Love all these vintage images! I wonder if they can be re-printed to frame for my home use? I would love to decorate a wall with vintage pics like this... And in poster size. Do you know if there are any rules about this - and how I could go about obtaining them? Love your blog and welcome back to posting land! Keep em coming! BOO!

    PS - especially love this one. Such a double meaning in that now we know form food experts that High Fructose Corn Syrup is one of the most deadly (obesity inducing and brain altering) sweeteners of all time! Really fits the Halloween spirit, don't you think?
