Quotes: The Man They Couldn't Hang
Ygor: They hanged me once, Frankenstein... they broke my neck.
Baron Frankenstein: Hanged you... well, why did they hang you?
Ygor: Because I stole bodies... they said...

"I'll tell you something about this El Diablo. They did find him once. Caught him down in Amos, a little border town north of Laredo. Caught him, tried him and hanged him all in the same night. But he wouldn't die. He just hanged there by his neck, spitting at the crowd like they disgusted him. Cussed 'em out so bad the women folk had to go home. I was there when they cut him down. And I thank the Lord I left when I did. Three days later, so the story goes, El Diablo returned to Amos with his men and cut out the heart of every man, woman and child in the whole blessed town."
