[SIGHS]

MIRROR.

LARRY, BEFORE I LET

YOU SEE YOURSELF,

ARE YOU SURE YOU CAN

STAND THE SHOCK?

[MUFFLED] OH, YEAH, SURE.

SURE I CAN.

I KNOW WITH THOSE

FANGS IN YOUR MOUTH

YOU CAN'T

TALK CLEARLY,

BUT MAKE A SOUND,

AND I'LL GIVE YOU

A LOOK:

AT YOURSELF.

[GROWLING]

LOOK.

[MUMBLING]

WHAT'D YOU SAY?

[MUMBLING]

HMM? HEH HEH HEH!

OK, I'LL REMOVE

YOUR FANGS.

WE CAN:

PUT THEM BACK IN

BEFORE WE GO:

TO THE SET.

WHY, IT'S SO REAL,

I EVEN FEEL LIKE A WEREWOLF.

THOUGH I'D HATE

TO HAVE MY GIRL SEE ME.

[CHUCKLES]

PETE, YOU'RE THE END.

OH, THANK YOU,

MY BOY.

HE'S THE GREATEST.

BOY, YOU'LL GET NO

ARGUMENT FROM ME THERE.

I SCARE MYSELF.

HEY, THIS IS AS CRAZY

AS THE FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER

YOU MADE OUT OF TONY.

ALWAYS:

THE MASTER'S TOUCH.

YOU KNOW, I THINK I'LL

BE AFRAID TO SEE MYSELF,

EVEN ON THE SCREEN.

OH, YOU'LL GET

USED TO IT, LARRY.

JUST REMEMBER:

THAT AN ARTIST:

MUST HAVE NO FEAR.

WHY, A CREATION

IS ALMOST:

A SACRED THING.

ALL CREATIONS.

THE GOOD LORD:

CREATED SAINTS,

AND HE ALSO:

CREATED SINNERS.

HE CREATED THE LAMB

AND THE FAWN,

BUT HE:

ALSO CREATED:

THE WOLF:

AND THE JACKAL.

NOW, WHO CAN JUDGE

WHICH IS THE MOST

PRAISEWORTHY?

WELL, THAT'S ONE WAY

TO LOOK AT IT.

FOR 25 YEARS

HE'S BEEN THE MASTER.

HE CREATED THEM ALL.

AND IF I MAY SAY SO

IN ALL DUE MODESTY,

I REGARDED EACH ONE

AS A CREATION,

NO MORE IMPORTANT

THAN THIS.

WELL, THANKS FOR TRYING

TO CHEER ME UP,

BUT JUST THE SAME,

THIS SCARES ME.

NOW, REMEMBER,

MY BOY,

I CREATED YOU:

SO THAT YOU COULD

SCARE OTHERS.

AS AN ACTOR,

AS AN ARTIST,

THAT'S YOUR MISSION.

LIVE UP TO IT.

WELL, IT'S TIME FOR

US TO BE ON THE SET.

WE MUSTN'T KEEP THE

DIRECTOR WAITING.

THERE WE ARE.

FINE.

WELL, COME ON.

HEY!

WHAT ABOUT HIM?

IN THE NEXT PICTURE

AFTER WE:

CAPTURE THE SHIP?

I CLIMB ABOARD,

I DRAW MY SWORD,

AND THERE, STANDING

AT THE HELM--

IT'S NOT

THE CAPTAIN--

BUT THE WEREWOLF.

TERRIFIC, HUH?

AND WE'LL GET

OLD PETE:

TO DO THE MAKE-UP.

NOT BAD, NOT BAD.

BUT HOW DID A WOLF

GET IN THE OCEAN?

HELLO, EVERYONE.

[MURMURING]

OUR FIRST STOP:

WILL BE ON STAGE 3,

WHERE THEY ARE:

NOW SHOOTING:

HORRORS OF:

THE BLACK MUSEUM.

FOLKS, I THINK

YOU'RE IN LUCK.

THE BIG SCENE:

OF THE PICTURE:

SHOOTS TODAY.

NOW, IF YOU WILL

ALL STAY TOGETHER

AND FOLLOW ME...

BOY, WHEN PETE

MAKES THEM UP,

IT'S FOR REAL.

WELL, AT LEAST

WE LOOK NORMAL.

HA HA!

DON'T WE, THOUGH?

[BOTH LAUGH]

WELL, HERE HE IS,

MARTIN.

GREAT, PETE.

JUST GREAT!

EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED.

THIS IS AS GOOD:

AND FEROCIOUS:

AS YOUR FRANKENSTEIN

MONSTER.

WELL, THANK YOU.

GET TONY OUT HERE.

I WANT TO SEE:

HOW THESE 2 BEAUTIES

LOOK TOGETHER.

Martin:
WEREWOLF,

MEET FRANKENSTEIN.

SHAKE HANDS AND:

COME OUT SNARLING.

WELL, PETE,

ALL I CAN SAY:

IS YOU GAVE BIRTH

TO A FINE PAIR OF SONS.

YOU CAN BE REALLY

PROUD OF YOUR CREATION.

WILL YOU BE NEEDING ME?

NO. YOU CAN REST

ON YOUR LAURELS.

IF I NEED YOU,

I'LL SEND FOR YOU.

I'LL BE

IN MY MAKE-UP ROOM.

GOOD.

NOW, BOYS,

LISTEN CAREFULLY.

REMEMBER,

THIS IS THE BIG SCENE

OF THE PICTURE.

THE AUDIENCE:

IS WAITING FOR THIS,

WHERE FINALLY WEREWOLF

MEETS FRANKENSTEIN.

THEY HATE EACH OTHER.

IT'S A FIGHT TO THE DEATH.

IT'S THE BATTLE

OF THE MONSTERS,

AND IT MUST BE:

THE HIGH SPOT:

OF THE PICTURE.

IT'S GOT TO BE

THE GREATEST FIGHT

WE'VE EVER HAD

ON THE SCREEN.

AND I'VE GOT TO GET IT

IN ONE TAKE.

SO, LISTEN TO DIRECTIONS

CAREFULLY.

YOU'LL COME IN

FROM OUT THERE.

NOW, YOU'LL

COME IN FROM HERE.

FAIRLY STEALTHILY...

VERY CUNNING...

WITH ANIMAL INSTINCT,

YOU WILL FEEL THAT

THERE'S AN ENEMY AROUND.

YOU HEAR SOMETHING.
