Memo:

This took examples from the movie posters for The Mummy (1932), a Pre-Code horror film directed by Karl Freund, released by Universal Studios, starring Boris Karloff and Zita Johann;

And, the lost film, The Cat Creeps (1930), a pre-Code crime/mystery film, and a sound remake of The Cat and the Canary (1927), which starred Helen TwelvetreesRaymond Hackett, and Neil Hamilton. (Yes, Commissioner Gordon, from the 60’s Batman series.)

I wanted to do a “Parliament of Owls” to Join Me In The Non-Halloween Challenge!, hosted by ManipulateThis; but, hardware problems made that impractical, this time.

Notes:

[1] “More Deadly Than The Male” is a line from the poem, “The Female of the Species” (1911), by Rudyard Kipling, in which it’s argued that the female is fiercer, because they’re more dedicated to the continuation of the species.

The line itself is a reference to On the Origin of Species, or “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection[3]  (1859),  the seminal work by Charles Darwin on evolutionary biology.

[2] The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) is an American sci fi horror film. It’s the first sequel to Universal Pictures' 1931 hit Frankenstein. As with the first film, it was directed by James Whale and stars Boris Karloff as The Monster,3] as well as  Elsa Lanchester in the dual role of the monster’s mate and Mary Shelley.
