In a 1985 interview, Mae Clarke said, "Colin Clive was the dearest, kindest--in the real meaning of the word "kind"--man, who gave you importance. He was so wonderful, so clever. When he started acting in a scene, I wanted to stop and just watch . . . I'd think, "Here I am, playing scenes with this marvelous actor!". Mr. Whale [director James Whale] would say, "Colin's voice is like a pipe organ . . . I just pull out the stops, and he produces the music." Colin was electric. I was mesmerized by him--so much so that I hoped it didn't show! When he looked at me, I'd flush. He had a wife back in England, and I had my young man (of the "Waterloo Bridge" premiere.) In fact, I was glad my fiancé was at the premiere that night--to be my good anchor against my stormy waves of fancy for Colin. He was the handsomest man I ever saw--and also the saddest. Colin's sadness was elusive; the sadness you see if you contemplate many of the master painters' and sculptors' conceptions of the face of Christ--the ultimate source in my view of all sadness.

Huge streaks are visible across the clouded sky during the chase at the end of the film, making the presence of a backdrop very obvious. See more »
This is simply the greatest horror movie ever made,, Dracula is a close second and say phantom of the opera,, anyway,, Bela Lugosi, gives his best performance i think of his whole career right here in this movie.. Clive Owen did great as Dr. Frankenstein,, then opening credits are great in here,, the look is so dark,, evil, pitch black.. of course the movie is in black and white,, for it's time,, it's even better,, i think it would be good for today,, i like the plot,, the storyline,, just pretty much everything about the movie,, the scene with the little girl and the flowers,, the classic,, it's alive scene, you really can't go wrong with this movie,, and anybody who don't like this movie,, needs to have their head removed and operated on by Dr. Frankenstein,, the best horror movie of all time,, in my opinion
