What a masterpiece! Funny, going back, looking at films years later, my perceptions are so different. This time it knocked me out. The lighting, the gorgeous black and white photography, the acting, the miniature people in the jars, Elsa Lancaster’s electrifying performance at the end (she said she studied the swans in Regents Park, who were “…very nasty creatures, always hissing at you…” for the role).
Directed by James Whale.
You could do a 3-part series: Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, and Young Frankenstein, all masterpieces.
