The opening and closing onscreen cast credits differ slightly in order. The film opens with the following written foreword: "In the year 1860, Baron Frankenstein was condemned to death for the brual murders committed by the monster he had created...The whole continent breathed a sigh of relief when the guillotine was called upon to end his life of infamy."
According to a September 1959 Hollywood Reporter news item, Hammer Films Productions, Ltd. had a deal to produce sixteen films for Columbia. The Revenge of Frankenstein was one of those films. The picture was the sequel to the 1957 Hammer Film The Curse of Frankenstein (see entry above). For additional information about other films based on the character of Baron Frankenstein, created by Mary Shelley, please see the entry for the 1931 Universal Pictures film Frankenstein in AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40.
