Besides being packaged in the metal film canisters I've seen some that were packaged assembled on a cardboard backing and wrapped in cellophane with a label on the cellophane. So, my Lon Chaney must've came like that and someone saved the label.

Here's one on e-bay showing the alternative packaging...

Holy, poop!

So where was the missing piece?

 ???

After doing my Bela puzzle I found the missing piece mixed in with my Mr. Hyde puzzle pieces.

I don't know how much someone might be willing to pay for one of the Lugosi Star Puzzles, but I do know that in their metal canisters they are pretty hard to find, and in the cellophane packaging they are even more hard to find.

Here's the last of my monster-related Star Puzzles. It's John Barrymore as Mr. Hyde. I also have the Marilyn Monroe Star Puzzle, but I haven't assembled it yet.

Not monster related, but '60's TV related--I have a boxed set of Green Hornet puzzles. Here's the box.

Cool Green Hornet puzzles!

They look hard to put together, though.

That's the one I like the best! Green Hornet's Black Beauty cars for the TV series were evidently built by Hollywood carmaker Dean Jeffries and based on 1966 Chrysler Imperials.

Aurora issued a fabulous Black Beauty model kit in 1966:

I like the Aurora Black Beauty kit, I don't have one, though.

Here's a puzzle from 1991 that has at least two things going for it--Bela Lugosi, and nice artwork on it.
