    Mildly disappointed by the Frankenstein vs. Dr. Jekyll story. I suppose I expected too much out of it, expecting it to arouse awe in me. Dr. Frankenstein did not have enough to do in the story, reminded me of "Evil of Frankenstein" or "Frankenstein Created Woman" where Frankenstein was portrayed as a surgical pioneer.
