dr. frankenstein

director james whale's film, FRANKENSTEIN is 'loosely based' on the gothic novel written by mary shelley. thank goodness as my sister and i never really liked the book. 
whale was a filmmaker with a background in theatre and this film is beautifully artistic. actor colin clive just about breaks your heart as the man who would be god. don't ask bela lugosi what he thinks of boris karloff, at least not if children are present. all i know is i felt for the disoriented and lonely monster even after the little girl is......

what a horrific image// innocence merged with unconscious brutal impulses.
