Michael B. Miller,
Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy published their original version of the screenplay for this film because they were so unhappy with the way it had turned out. The published script differs from the final film in a number of ways. They were also unhappy with casting - they had requested that Jon Voight be offered the part of Victor Frankenstein - and their hope that John Boorman would be hired as director was also dashed.

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.

Terrific movie about how the evils of men turn beauty into ugliness
I remember watching this movie as a child and not really understanding it until years later when the transformation from something beutiful to something ugly happened as Sarrazin was exposed to all the evils and negativity of his creatr and others.
An excellent movie for anyone wanting to know just what goes wrong on this planet...........
