This book, the second in the Classic Movie Monsters Collection, celebrates James Whale’s iconic 1931 production of Frankenstein, the film which catapulted Boris Karloff to international stardom overnight. Called simply Frankenstein 1931, it is beautifully written and illustrated with a wealth of stills and posters.
Author and horror film historian Nige Burton traces the film’s shaky beginnings through to the cinematic masterpiece it became, looking at the source material and various stage and screen adaptations which led to the Frankenstein we know and love. Within these lovingly designed pages you’ll discover the backstory behind one of horror cinema’s all-time icons, as well as the diverse and often tragic histories of its key cast and crew members.

It’s the perfect reference guide for any fan of Boris Karloff’s seminal performance, and the ultimate collector’s edition of this title.
