1931 Frankenstein....

Believe it or not until this evening I've never seen the original 1931 Frankenstein. I ordered it from Amazon and just finished watching it.

An interesting experience. In all candor I find it a bit creaky and awkward. Much of the acting is stiff and unconvincing. But Karloff is definitely the reason this film works. From when we're first introduced to him to the very last frame of him I felt nothing but sympathy for the monster. Without a word Karloff outclasses everyone in the film, no question.

I'm glad I finally got to see it and now have it in my dvd library.

Next up I want to see the 1931 Dracula and 1941 The Wolf Man
