BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN
Director Jame; Whale (1935)
This is Whale's own parody of his earlier classic
FRANKENSTEIN. Boris Korloff as the monster
is resurrected, and matched (patched?) up with
Elsa Lancaster. Along the way, pathos is inject-
ed, and the monster even learns how to talk and.
to smoke a cigar. The creation scene at the
finale rates as one of the best sequences in all
of Hollywood extravaganzas. A brilliant work by
one of horror film's best directors.
