The Bride of Frankenstein

Directed by James Whale. Starring Boris Karloff, Elsa Lanchester, Colin Clive, Valerie Hobson, Ernest Thesiger. (1935, G, 75 min.)

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., June 17, 1999

Remember Gods and Monsters? This is the great horror classic that we observe James Whale on the set filming in last year's loving biopic about the director. It's the one that has Elsa Lanchester with that memorable shock of white streaked through her hair. The film is part of the Universal Horror Film Series co-sponsored by the Austin Film Society.
