Never was there such an iconic movie monster as Universal’s Frankenstein Monster. Brought spectacularly to life by the combined visionary talents of director James Whale and make-up supremo Jack P Pierce, this shambling, sympathetic brute, played to perfection by Boris Karloff, was destined to become the stuff of cinematic legend.
From the groundbreaking first film, 1931’s Frankenstein, The Universal Frankenstein Movies 1931-1948 celebrates this tour de force of monster movie franchises. We look in detail at each film in turn, chronicling the significance of each entry: Frankenstein (1931), Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Son of Frankenstein (1939), The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942), Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943), House of Frankenstein (1944), House of Dracula (1945) and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948).
Through the vagaries of studio politics, decreasing budgets and some of the most incredible monster rallies ever committed to celluloid, this is a most remarkable story of the highs and lows of everyone’s favourite monster.
Painstakingly researched, and lovingly written by authors Nige Burton and Jamie Jones, The Universal Frankenstein Movies 1931-1948 also looks in depth at the many people behind the series, from cast and crew to studio executives and the creative brains at the beating heart of the Frankenstein story.
