FRANKENSTEIN / BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN
1931, Universal, 70 min, USA, Dir: James Whale
“A Monster Science Created – But Could Not Destroy!” Boris Karloff had appeared in more than 75 films before FRANKENSTEIN turned him almost overnight into a screen legend. His performance here – anguished, eloquent, wordless – remains one of the most hauntingly powerful in all cinema. With Colin Clive, Edward Van Sloan, Dwight Frye.
BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN
1935, Universal, 75 min, USA, Dir: James Whale
“Warning! The Monster Demands a Mate!” Widely considered the high point of the 1930s Universal horror cycle, BRIDE is a brilliant blend of black humor and Gothic style. Boris Karloff reprises his greatest role as the Monster, with Colin Clive as his reluctant “father,” the hilariously creepy Ernest Thesiger as Dr. Pretorius and Elsa Lanchester as the screaming-mimi Bride.
