Frankenstein Conquers the World

Earlier today, I attended a special event with former Toho scripter Keiko Hisamitsu (whose married name is Keiko Suzuki), the theme of which was the making of Frankenstein Conquers the World (1965). The event featured a detailed breakdown of the script featuring the notes Hisamistsu-san took during the production, as well as storyboard sketches of the SFX scenes.

Sadao Iizuka was on hand as a surprise guest. He occasionally threw in his two cents during the proceedings, which was an unexpected bonus.


It was a fun event featuring two great luminaries from Toho Studios. And I certainly learned quite a bit about FCTW. Can't wait to attend the next one!
