Bride of Frankenstein
  • 1935
  • US
  • 75 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Whale
  • Written by: Screenplay:, William Hurlbut, Adaptation:, William Hurlbut, John L Balderston, Novel:, Mary Shelley
  • Cast: Boris Karloff, Colin Clive, Valerie Hobson, Ernest Thesiger, Elsa Lanchester, Una O'Connor

Marvellously dry comic horror as Thesiger's gin-soaked Dr Praetorious persuades Clive's good Baron Frankenstein that his monster needs a mate, setting the scene for the hilarious climactic creation sequence where the stern Lanchester joins Karloff in the ranks of the living undead. Virtually remade by Mel Brooks as 'Young Frankenstein' and badly abused by Franc Roddam's disastrous 'The Bride', nothing can quite match the outrageous piquancy of the original.
