Penniless, Baron Frankenstein, accompanied by his eager assistant Hans, arrives at his family castle near the town of Karlstaad, vowing to continue his experiments in the creation of life. Fortuitously finding the creature he was previously working on, he brings it back to a semblance of life but requires the services of a mesmerist, Zoltan, to successfully animate it. The greedy and vengeful Zoltan secretly sends the monster into town to steal gold and 'punish' the burgomaster and the chief of police, which acts lead to a violent confrontation between the baron and the townspeople.

At 52:49 Zoltan says "There's not a man born of woman that I can't put under." The English caption incorrectly has "or" rather than "of". See more

I realized long ago that the only way to prove my theories was to make something in my laboratory that actually lived. I never told you, Hans... I succeeded once.
TV version removes some scenes from the theatrical release and features 13 minutes of additional footage starring Steven Geray, Maria Palmer, William Phipps. Specifically, the scenes added for TV prints are: the scene in which a reporter asks an old doctor why nobody wants to talk about Baron Frankenstein (the later part of this scene is intercut with shots of the deafmute young woman, who IS part of the movie as originally filmed: the two men watch her and talk about her, but do not interact with her); the flashback scene showing the little girl being traumatized by the monster, becoming deaf and mute as a result (only his feet are shown); and the present-day scene in which the girl's father, now a drunken wreck, is told that psychological help may be able to overcome her muteness. These scenes are inserted into the movie smoothly, via dissolves rather than rough cuts, but they add nothing other than length. None of the characters actually gets involved in the story, and nothing about them is resolved: the reporter doesn't get the scoop he's looking for, the father doesn't get his revenge against the Baron, and the deaf woman doesn't get the therapy mentioned.
