    Amazing... Love all the Universal Frankenstein movies.
    Makes you wonder what else ended up on the cutting room floor from those classic monster pictures. (I mean besides the stuff we already know about)...

    Huh. Wonder if it's more an outtake than an alternate ending? Clearly the makeup and costume are further burnt though.

    My first reaction - this was meant to be trailer footage. The lighting, the smoke...he looks like a ghost.

    So I'm wondering if they shot this "ending" then Universal watched the rough cut. They found the Lugosi-voice Frank laughable, so they decided to just kill him because without Boris, they got nothing. Then the box office did well at B-Level budget, so he had to come back but this time Lugosi gets a crack. Siodmak keeps continuity, but the same problem remains: the voice does not match the look. So it's all chopped from Frank v Wolf Man and now we're onto Glen Strange land.

    Looks to me like this was indeed meant for the movie. Maybe he stalked after Ralph Belamy and Evelyn Ankers. Universal usually didn't go for the monsters stalking away, even injured. Their demises were pretty definitive in each film...then they had to figure out a way that they survived in the next one. So there is perhaps even MORE lost footage of the Monster's NEW final fate, because he had to be destroyed by the end of this movie, if we follow the Universal rules.

    OR...they could have filmed just this, and decided to just end it when the house collapsed on him. But either way, this is AMAZING!!!
