Re: 1931 Frankenstein....

The quantum leap in filmmaking technique between Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein is startling. Frankenstein is creaky. It's not a bad film, but it's an early talkie and you can see that they were just figuring out the format. Bride is a slick Hollywood production that improves on the original in every way.

I'm toying with going to that screening tonight, but I know traffic is going to be a nightmare worthy of the Frankenstein monster.

Re: 1931 Frankenstein....

My husband's great uncle (Russel Gausman) was the set decorator for this film as well as other horror films and he won an oscar for set decoration for one of them, Phantom of the Opera, I think. I saw it (the award) at his uncle's house, but that was many years ago.
