Saw this once around 1971 on local TV. Very faithful version except that Ian Holm payed both monster and creator (he makes the creature in his own image and makes a botched job of it). Filmed in dreary black and white, it is the one version I've seen that captures the despair in the novel (if nothing else). Of note: Holm played the father in the newest version.
