Movies That You Never See The Title Character

Many of the films with "Frankenstein" in the title are misleading, since Frankenstein was the name of the doctor; the monster was nameless.

 

Hence, Abbott and Costello never really meet Frankenstein, nor does Frankenstein really meet the Wolfman.

Unless you count Ilona Massey as "Baroness Elsa Frankenstein" as the "Frankenstein" who meets The Wolf Man in that film.

Good point, although I have trouble associating the luscious Ilona with anything Frankensteinian.

> The Invisible Man poses a problem. Since he's invisible, we can't actually see him; when he's visible, we do see him, but then he is no longer The Invisible Man. That hurts just thinking about it.

 

LOL

 

And I'm still not going to accept the Maltese Falcon. Just because Greenstreets character thinks there's a "real" one out there and continues to persue it, there is nothing to say the whole idea of a jeweled figure is just a legend. That plaster statue might be all there is. You see _A_ Maltese Falcon, and that's enough.

 

In Since You Went Away, I think we see a photo of Tim near the beginning. The Women certainly gets the buzzer because the whole film shows the "women".

If picures/photographs count, we do see Harvey in the painting that James Stewart hangs over the mantelshelf above the fireplace midway through the movie.

Agreed!

 

And here's one that you might find of particular interest, Rich:

 

In UNMAN, WITTERING AND ZIGO, 1971, we never see Zigo. This is a British suspense/

thriller with David Hemmings as a new teacher at a British boys' school who's informed on his first day by his class that they've killed his predecessor and if he doesn't toe the line, he'll be next! It's pretty good.

 

The title refers to the last three names in the class roll, but as stated, Zigo is never seen (he's probably off somewhere with Ferris Beuller)..
