Thanks to Renée Soutendijk, Eve (as in Eve of Destruction) may have the best legs of any man-made monster in movie history—even if she doesn't have much else going for her in the new horror film. Some other highlights of the genre—Best hairdo: Elsa Lanchester in The Bride of Frankenstein. Best bald spot: John Malkovich in Making Mr. Right. Best puzzled (and barely visible) frown: Boris Karloff in the original Frankenstein. Most plausible out-of-control monster to anyone who has ever dealt with a bank's automatic teller: Hal the computer in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Most sympathetic neoinsect (tie): David Hedison and Jeff Goldblum in the two versions of The Fly (honorable mention to Susan Cabot in Wasp Woman). Most sympathetic neoreptile: George Macready in The Alligator People. Best orator: Bela Lugosi in Island of Lost Souls. Best dancer: Peter Boyle in Mel Brooks's Young Frankenstein. Best right-to-the-point title: 1941's Man Made Monster, with Lon Chaney Jr.
