Bride of Frankenstein 1935
The 1935 sequel to Frankenstein became a hit in its own right, and deservedly so. A new stylistic approach was just the beginning, as James Whale and his expert team told the missing part of Mary Shelley’s tale in a new and thrilling way.
Even today, the atmosphere, styling and performances in this movie weave a powerful spell for existing fans and first-time viewers alike. Authors Nige Burton and Jamie Jones explore the many ways in which Bride of Frankenstein makes for compelling viewing, from James Whale’s wry humour, to the pathos of Karloff’s Monster and the anti-chemistry with Elsa Lanchester’s portrayal of his doomed mate.
This luxury magazine guide is crammed with high quality stills, posters and lobby cards, as well as trivia, behind-the-scenes information and biographies of the cast and crew who made this movie so special. Any fan of Universal monsters, Boris Karloff or classic horror cannot afford to miss it – it’s the must-have publication for any true Bride of Frankenstein aficionado.
Classic Monsters founder, author and horror film historian Nige Burton and co-author Jamie Jones have dug deep into their crypt to unearth the compelling stories of the making of what, by many, are considered to be two of the most influential horror movies of the 20th Century. If you are a fan of the Universal classic monsters, then these unique tributes are most definitely for your collection, which will become enriched as we add future titles in the series.
