View Full Version : Help me ID this campy ultra-lo-budget movie from the '70s

I once saw it on the late late show on a UHF station, after "Creature Feature." It involves an innocent young yokel who comes to the big city and somehow gets caught up in a crime -- a femme fatal named "Plethora" plays a role, IIRC -- gets killed, and then is resurrected as a supercool superhero by a mad scientist and goes out for justice/revenge. The script belabors the ethics of vigilantism -- the hero, having killed a couple guys, defends himself, referring to the scientist -- "To fight for good you must destroy evil! He said it himself!"

Fearless Frank (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061654/).

Fearless Frank? (http://imdb.com/title/tt0061654/)

Just so you know, you can search IMDb by character name. That brings up Fearless Frank as the only exact match for the name "Plethora."

That's how I did it. After that it was a quick Google search that brought up this summary (http://movies.nytimes.com/movie/91163/Fearless-Frank/overview), which seemed to closely match BrainGlutton's memory.

Believe it or not, I was actually thinking about FEARLESS FRANK a few days ago in the context of "Movies that were on TV all the time when I was a kid that I haven't seen in years".... that really needs to be on DVD.
