Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell
This week we kick off a small series of tribute episodes that we didn’t manage to get to last year. Looking back at 2020, one of the more prominent film industry figures who passed on was David Prowse. He may not be a household name, and you may not even have recognized him if you passed him on the street. But he was certainly a big part of your life if you were ever a Star Wars fan, as his performance as Darth Vader captivated generations.
The champion bodybuilder from Bristol didn’t do too much film work outside of that iconic franchise, but thankfully for us he put in a couple turns as Frankenstein’s monster for the Hammer House of Horror in the 70’s. Enjoy today’s homage to the superior of the two roles.
