Looks like Colin's more than happy to see Karloff!

Circa 1935

This one isn't mine, but is a detail from a professional "faux" lobby card:

Here is a frame grab from JOURNEY'S END (1930), reimagined (and reimaged) to suggest what it might look like if filmed in two-strip Technicolor of that time:

That's the wrong skin color on Frankenstein. The original was a bluish-gray color, NOT GREEN!

I didn't add any green, in fact I didn't add any color to Karloff's skin tone except for a light ambient brown added to the entire photo. I prefer to keep the Monster a mortuary gray but if you're going get huffy about it, take a look at these posters...and no, I haven't fiddled with the colors:

Even the lobby cards and posters for ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE KILLER, BORIS KARLOFF and ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET DOCTOR JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE color Boris Karloff green.
