** The previous movies seemed to depict the Monster's entire career, but now we're told that he amputated young Krogh's arm at some point, and that he was struck by lightning.
* ConspicuousGloves: Inspector Krogh has a prosthetic arm (having lost his right arm when a child, the Monster tearing it off the boy) and he wears a glove on it indoors and out. He does remove the left glove in some indoors scenes There's a bit of black comedy when the actor (Lionel Atwill) sets the position of his right arm with his left hand to "demonstrate" the right arm is prosthetic.
