The miniature of the burning castle shown at the climax of The Ghost of Frankenstein is identical to the miniature of the burning mansion shown at the climax of Night Monster. See more »
When the monster appears outside Elsa's window, it casts a
nearly full-body shadow on the library wall, with one arm fully visible, but in the close-ups of the monster the arm in question is obscured behind the window frame. Later in the same sequence, Ygor pops up over the monster's shoulder, yet the shadow cast seconds later shows only the monster. See more »
Ghost of Frankenstein takes place after 1939's son of Frankenstein. this time the second son of Frankenstein(sir Cedric hardwicke)who is a mental health physician picks up where his brother left off.the monster(Lon Chaney Jr)and ygor(Bela Lugosi)seek him out for help.but the good doctors assistant(Lionel atwill)has other ideas.the beautiful Evelyn ankers plays Dr Frankenstein's daughter.Ralph Bellamy as her boyfriend. i would call this the weakest in the series but still very enjoyable. i actually love the whole universal Frankenstein series,after this there was 4 more;Frankenstein meets the wolfman(43)house of Frankenstein (44)house of dracula(45)and the comedy classic Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein(47)anyway i give ghost of Frankenstein 8 out of 10.a good universal b movie with a great cast.
