"It’s alive! It’s alive!" Colin Clive's Henry Frankenstein determines to create life itself, but proper brain procurement proves the sticking point. James Whale's horror classic deviates wildly from Mary Shelley's source novel — and film history is all the better for it. Boris Karloff poignantly conveys the Monster’s own terror and humanity beneath memorably grotesque makeup by Jack Pierce. DIR James Whale; SCR Francis Edward Faragoh, Garett Fort, from the composition by John L. Balderston, the play by Peggy Webling and the novel by Mary Shelley; PROD Carl Laemmle, Jr. U.S., 1931, b&w, 71 min. NOT RATED
