Super Rare Frankenstein! Why didn't I know about this?
I knew of boxer/wrestler Primo Canera and his few movie appearances where he took on MIGHTY JOE YOUNG (1949) and Steve Reeves in HERCULES UNCHAINED (1959) but never this! This was an NBC Matinee Theater presentation that aired at the same time I WAS A TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN was flexing its biceps across cinema screens and Christopher Lee was shambling before the cameras at Bray Studios for CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN. Very weird. Always learning something new.
There's very little information I can find and imdb doesn't list any other cast members. The rather lame looking DeNiro monster is a total rip off of this make up design. Coincidence?
