Frankenstein: The True Story (1973)

There are many film versions of Frankenstein and one of the more interesting concepts is starting with a handsome creature that turns ugly during the course of the film. This is the premise behind, Frankenstein: The True Story. The final stage of decay is effectively captured with this sculpt by Joe Simon for Model Prisoners. This piece is considered a painter’s piece since there was very little building to be done (attach arms and assemble the chandelier). The painting was all done with acrylics and in layers to give the final painting some depth and interest. The tips of the candles are cut ends of toothpicks and painted.
