A list of people Frankenstein meets in this film:
- no one… he’s not in it.
Instead it’s his incredibly beautiful but unnecessary daughter.
Lon Chaney is a compelling antihero and the best part of this film by far. You really root for him.
I wondered why the monster could no longer speak then realised under that Boris Karloff make up was Bela Lugosi. He’s a pretty good replacement and the camera loves his characteristic lip curls.
