Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Marilyn Harris, who played Maria, the girl The Monster accidentally kills in the original Frankenstein (1931), appears uncredited as another young girl. She is the leader of the group of young schoolgirls who encounter the Monster as he runs away from the blind man's burning house. Director James Whale deliberately gave her a one-word line ("Look!"), so she would be paid more by the studio as an actor with a speaking role, instead of as an extra. See more »
Goofs The film is a direct continuation of Frankenstein (1931), yet in that first film, Maria's father is named Ludwig. In this film he is named Hans and is played by a different actor. (This wouldn't be an issue if the actor who played Ludwig wasn't clearly shown in the recap of the first film.) See more »
