Boris Karloff as Frankenstein's Monster playing baseball

Karloff as Frankenstein's Monster up at bat

Man, what I wouldn’t give to see the complete footage of this game–Boris Karloff as Frankenstein’s Monster, The Three Stooges, Sinatra as a team captain: it might be enough to get me interested in baseball.

Update: Alas, the footage has been taken down…but you do still get to see the “umpire” emerging from the dugout in this replacement bit…

Direct link for the feedreaders.

If anyone knows where to find more of this footage, please let me know.
