Maria Grazia Buccella,
The character 'Dr. Polidori' is not taken from Mary Shelley's novel, but was a real life acquaintance of hers. He started to write "The Vampyre" in the same weekend that she got the idea to write "Frankenstein". The actual Polidori served as Lord Byron's doctor at the time, who mockingly referred to him as 'Pollydori', just like Clerval does in this TV adaptation. See more »
When Victor is talking to Elizabeth outside the church at his brother's funeral, he is holding his right hand on her shoulder. The shot switches to Elizabeth's face, and his hand is still on her shoulder. In the next wide shot, Victor's hand is down by his side.

James Mason and Leonard Whiting did superb jobs in portraying their parts and this story of Frankenstein. Frankenstein has been around since long before I was a kid, but its always been a thriller to watch. This particular one put on a personal side and a new twist to it not previously seen. Although much of it is repetitious to other movies about Frankenstein, it is worth watching.
