Audience Reviews for The Frankenstein Files: How Hollywood Made a Monster

This doc explores the iconic creation of the Frankenstein Monster. Filmmakers and film historians reach back to share some of the differences between Mary Shelley's creation in print and the creature brought to life by Karloff. They also look at a few of the stage adaptations that appeared immediately in the 1800s and then proceed to early screenplays and story concepts that were being considered before James Whale was given the reins and picked out Boris Karloff to star. The look of the makeup is discussed. The Universal sequels are briefly explained and the legacy of this classic monster revisited by Hammer films is mentioned. Also the film Gods and Monsters about the life of James Whale is considered.
