I know that many people — my ...

Question: I know that many people — my own sister included — refer to Dr. Frankenstein's monster by the name of his creator. Is this laziness on their part, or is there some basis in any of the Frankenstein movies for calling the creature "Frankenstein"? I read your column every week and know that if anybody would know, it would be you.<P>

 


Answer: Thank you, Jay, for your vote of confidence and for mentioning my bete noir (all right, one of my betes noirs — I'm easily peeved).

In the series, which ran on NBC from 1957-62 before jumping to ABC and finishing out its run there in 1965, Bond played Major Seth Adams, who led the train each season from St. Louis to California with assistant wagon master Bill Hawks (Terry Wilson) and cook Charlie Wooster (Frank McGrath) by h read more
