The Lee Cushing Podcast Extra #1: The Frankenstein sequels

During the recording of our episode on The Curse of Frankenstein, Howard and Dan also chatted for really rather a long time about the other six Frankenstein pictures produced by Hammer between 1958 and 1973.  As none of them feature Christopher Lee we thought this was somewhat out of the remit of the podcast, but on the other hand, as most of them do feature Peter Cushing, you might be interested to hear the chat.  Apologies in advance as it's rather rambly and we're not as sure of our facts as in the main episode: we state that Kiwi Kingston was Australian (he was a New Zealander, hence the nickname), that Frankenstein's creature was discovered frozen in 1939's Son of Frankenstein (it was actually in 1943's Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man) and that The Evil of Frankenstein features a burning windmill (that was actually in 1960's The Brides of Dracula).  But there's still lots of enthusiasm to be found, as well as nuggets of information, about most of the films in Hammer's Frankenstein series.
