The Monster Pose

A few cinematic ubiquities unfortunately lost to time - quicksand, that watery effect when going into flashback, and this pose:

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)
dir. Robert Wiene

Man Made Monster (1941)
dir. George Waggner

Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943)
dir. Roy William Neill

The Mummy's Curse (1944)
dir. Leslie Goodwins

The Mummy's Ghost (1944)
dir. Reginald Le Borg

Robot Monster (1953) (publicity photo)
dir. Phil Tucker

Gorilla at Large (1954)
dir. Harmon Jones

Curse of the Faceless Man (1958)
dir. Edward L. Cahn

Frankenstein - 1970 (1958)
dir. Howard W Koch

Horror of Dracula (1958)
dir. Terence Fisher

Vertigo (1958)
dir. Alfred Hitchcock (I believe this is a subtle hint about how messed up Scottie is)

The Mummy (1959)
dir. Terence Fisher

I'll update this post with every new encounter I have with the monster pose.
