|Contents:||"The greatest horror film of all time! Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) dares to tamper with life and death by crreating a human monster (Boris Karloff) in his laboratory; but his dreams of perfection are thwarted when the monster becomes an uncontrollable beast! Director James Whale's adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel mixes gothic decay and chilling lyricism; and Karloff, in the role he would be identified with for the rest of his life, offers a compasionate portrayal of the monster's groping for identity."|
