Behind the Man Who Created Frankenstein
21 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While rather short, this is a fair look at the life of James Whale, the director of the two good Frankenstein films and many other classics (some not as appreciated as they should be).

We never get into the full detail, and there is a good part of the time where the speakers are talking about making the film "Gods and Monsters" rather than the man himself, but you have to expect that, I suppose. A documentary focusing just on Whale would be incredible, though will likely never happen.

I especially love that this short look has Clive Barker and David Skal, two guys who know horror films and the importance of Whale on the industry. He was a key figure in horror history, not to mention a pioneer for gay Hollywood in his own way.
