Monster PSA: Lionel Atwill

Lionel Atwill was someone I wanted to pay tribute to via a Monster PSA poster for a while, for whatever reason it took me a long time to come up with the right image and tag line.

Of all Atwill's many roles, its his Inspector Krogh character from Son of Frankenstein that's probably his most remembered (it was memorably parodied by Kenneth Mars in Young Frankenstein), so I knew I wanted to portray him as that character, looking so very official.

Knowing what we know of Atwill's private life (Christmas Eve orgies!), and how it negatively affected his career, I'd say this would be the kind of advice he would give.
