"The Ballad of Dwight Fry" (Music)

Dwight Frye (with an e) was an actor from the 1920s and '30s who specialized in playing mentally unbalanced characters. He most notably played the Igor-like (but not actually Igor, as Igor appeared in a later film) hunchbacked assistant Fritz in the original Frankenstein. The rock group Alice Cooper wrote a song based on him called "The Ballad of Dwight Fry" (no e), which was on their 1971 album Love It To Death. Why is the coach named after him? Not quite sure, but it is an interesting bit of movie trivia, isn't it?
