Dan Curtis production originally made for television, one of the many renderings of the classic Mary Shelley tale. It's shot on videotape and was originally aired as a two-part episode of a show called "Wide World Mystery". It's quite underwhelming at first, at least until the appearance of the monster (interestingly played by Bo Svenson). From then on, Svenson's humanistic approach as a tortured and sympathetic creature makes for a decent take on the original story. His is one of the finest monsters in any Frankenstein production. Robert Foxworth doesn't fare as well as Dr. Victor Frankenstein; he's over the top and rather theatrical. **1/2 out of ****
