The Monster Carry

The Frankenstein Monster carries away Elsa in "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man".
But who is that underneath the Frankenstein make-up?  Bela Lugosi is credited for playing the part, but we know this is not him, but a stuntman.  History used to tell us that the stunt man was the one and only Eddie Parker, but in recent years, it has more or less been proven that the Monster is actually stuntman Gil Perkins.

Here's Elena Verdugo as Ilonka from "House of Frankenstein".
