Overlooked Films: Johnny Yuma Meets Frankenstein


In 1965, Academy Award Nominee and former Rebel star Nick Adams joined the ranks of such honored thespians as Raymond Burr, and accepted a role in a cheesy Japanese monster movie. Ouch.

I've never seen this one, and not sure I could stand it. The posters and pics are almost too much to bear. On the other hand, Adams reportedly had a fling with his co-star Kimo Mizuno (with whom he also made the Godzilla flick Invasion of Astro-Monster, better known as Monster Zero, which I have seen), so chances are he had a better time making these turkeys than anyone did watching them.

The tag line doesn't even make sense. The Seven Wonders of the World were structures. How does that equate to a monster? Was he a failed project from This Old House?
