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).
