A-Z TRIVIA WEDNESDAY: THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN

Although they had both previously appeared in Hamlet (1948) and Moulin Rouge (1952), Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing met on the set of this film for the first time. They would pass the time between shots by exchanging Looney Tunes phrases, and quickly developed a fast friendship, which lasted until Cushing’s death in 1994.

A-Z TRIVIA WEDNESDAY: CURSED

In 2014, Costar Judy Greer spoke of the film in an interview: “I don’t know why that movie got so fucked up. I don’t understand it. I thought the script was fine. Honest to god, I didn’t get the big deal. I don’t know who kept making them fuck with it”. “Then we shot the movie for, like, seven years. I think they said we had four movies worth of footage. It was so fun, but so weird. I don’t get it. I couldn’t figure it out.”
