Quotes

Dr. John Polidori: And what different futures, your and mine. But each will have what each desires. Only fools like Henry Clerval want vulgar fame. I shall have the power that works unseen, that moves the world. You alone, Frankenstein, when you read in your newspaper that a monarch has been deposed or that two nations are at war with each other, will say to yourself - that's the hand of Polidori. That's the man who once called me colleague.
Dr. Victor Frankenstein: Long live Polidori the invisible. May his plots thicken.

An excellent version of Frankenstein
4 June 1999 | by (Colorado Springs) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie the other night. I was impressed by how many well known actors were in it. The acting was very good. Leonard Whiting was very convincing and seemed to really share a bond with his monster. The monster didn't seem to be all that evil until people started being mean to it. I think the movie tried to show us that beauty is only skin deep. Jane Seymour was excellent. I recommend this movie highly, it is very well done.
