It’s strange how pop culture can shape images in your mind. To me Victor Frankenstein will always look like Gene Wilder (even though his character in Young Frankenstein was actually a distant relative) and Frankenstein’s monster will always be Boris Karloff with the flattop head and bolts in his neck, even though I’ve never actually seen the 1931 film. Baring that in mind, it made it difficult for Megan-Anne and I to agree on what to put on the square. She was in favor of the iconic image of Boris Karloff, but I wanted there to be a distinction between the monster and the man since people tend to refer to the creature as Frankenstein. So, we went with lightning striking the castle and a mob out front. I don’t know why, but it makes me giggle every time I see it. I adore it.
