The Bride Of Frankenstein Has Never Been Given A Proper Spotlight

Unlike many movie monster properties, 1935’s Bride of Frankenstein was not based on a classic novel or story. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein did not have The Creature being given a bride, but he does ask Victor Frankenstein to create a female companion for him. In the book, the mad scientist starts to, but later abandons the project, leaving The Creature lonely. Bride of Frankenstein plays with the ‘what if’ scenario of if Dr. Frankenstein actually followed through on this. However, in the James Whale movie itself, Elsa Lanchester’s Bride doesn’t appear until the last ten minutes of the movie. She has almost no screen time, and it’s a shame because the concept of her is an especially clever one.
