Day 17 of the #OctHorrorMovieChallenge Favourite Lugosi or Karloff Movie-together or separate. For me that would be The Bride of Frankenstein. I know Boris Karloff thought letting the Creature speak was a mistake, but I thought it added to the character. #thebrideoffrankenstein #jameswhale #boriskarloff #colinclive #elsalanchester #ernestthesiger #universalpictures #classicfilm #classicmovies #oldhollywood #TCMParty

"A Noiva de Frankenstein" (1935) é a continuação do filme solo do monstro criado por Mary Shelley. Quatro anos após "Frankenstein" o diretor James Whale e Boris Karloff estavam de volta mas dessa vez o resultado não foi o mesmo. O primeiro era mais cru, mais terror, e esse é mais diversão, embora tenha seus momentos dignos do gênero. Pra um filme muito antigo os efeitos especiais são muito bons. Uma pena é a personagem da noiva ter pouquíssimo tempo em tela. Mesmo assim entrou pra história do cinema. Um detalhe curioso: o filme se chama A Noiva de Frankenstein, mas Frankenstein é o criador, não a criatura. No mais é um bom filme mas o primeiro é melhor. "O Lobisomem" (1941) é muito bom. Temos Lon Chaney Jr. em seu primeiro papel de destaque e a lenda Bela Lugosi, numa participação. Duas curiosidades: nesse filme não existe a influência da lua cheia na transformação do lobisomem e o conceito do lobisomem ser vulnerável à prata começou aqui. O único porém é o próprio personagem título. Devido aos lobisomens de muitos e muitos filmes posteriores, esse não deixa de ser um ator com maquiagem de lobo. Só as tecnologias posteriores da sétima arte possibilitaram o homem se transformando realmente em lobo. O curioso é que o lobisomem que morde Lon Chaney Jr. é um lobo. Porque ele não virou um lobo também? Enfim, esse deslize não compromete o filme que é muito bom #UniversalMonsters #ANoivadeFrankenstein #BrideofFrankenstein #JamesWhale #BorisKarloff #ElsaLanchester #ColinClive #ValerieHobson #ErnestThesiger #GavinGordon #DouglasWalton #UnaOConnor #JohnCarradine #DwightFrye #AnneDarling #OLobisomem #TheWolfMan #GeorgeWaggner #LonChaneyJr #ClaudeRains #WarrenWilliam #RalphBellamy #PatricKnowles #BelaLugosi #MariaOuspenskaya #EvelynAnkers #terror #cinema #filmes #movies

10/14/18 Sunday movie and throwback to when @jamieleeneely and I were the monster and his mate for Halloween. To be honest, I much prefer the original Frankenstein film. Bride is still a great film, but over all has a completely different feel to me. That being said, I do have to admit that the best part of this film is also one of my favorite characters ever to exist in cinema. The wickedly sarcastic and devilishly persuasive Dr. Pretorius played by the great Ernest Thesiger. Colin Clive as Henry Frankenstein and Boris Karloff as the monster are just as great as they were in the first. 9 out of 10 pumpkins. 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃 And one charming devil for Ernest 😈. #brideoffrankenstein #frankenstein #monster #drfrankenstein #henryfrankenstein #boriskarloff #colinclive #ernestthesiger #drpretorius #universalstudios #universalhorror #pumpkins #fall #Autumn #Halloween #samhain #devil

#thebrideoffrankenstein #trivia 📽 -The musical soundtrack for this film proved so popular, it was used again in the Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers serials starring Buster Crabbe. -Director James Whale originally did not want to do a sequel to Frankenstein (1931). For a time, Universal considered producing a sequel without Whale's involvement. One possible story included an educated monster continuing Henry's research, while another chronicled Henry's creation of a death ray on the eve of a world war. However, after 4 years of badgering by Universal, Whale agreed to do the film. -Special effects experts John P. Fulton and David S. Horsley spent two days shooting Dr. Pretorius' miniature beings. The actors were placed in full-sized bell jars set against black velvet. These shots were meticulously lined up to match them with shots of Ernest Thesiger, Colin Clive and the interior set. #classicsuggestions #movietrivia #halloweenclassicsuggestions #jameswhale #boriskarloff #elsalanchester #colinclive #valeriehobson

#brideoffrankenstein #trivia 👻 -Elsa Lanchester said that her spitting, hissing performance was inspired by the swans in Regent's Park, London. "They're really very nasty creatures," she said. -The tiny mermaid in Dr. Pretorius' bottle was Josephine McKim, a member of the 1924 and 1928 U.S. Women's Olympic Swim Teams and one of the four members of that team to win the 1928 gold medal in the 400-Meter Freestyle Relay. McKim was also Maureen O'Sullivan's body double in the infamous nude swimming scene of the previous year's Tarzan and His Mate (1934). -Bela Lugosi was considered for the role of Doctor Pretorius. #classicsuggestions #movietrivia #halloweenclassicsuggestions #jameswhale #boriskarloff #elsalanchester #colinclive #valeriehobson

#brideoffrankenstein #trivia 🎃 -Boris Karloff protested against the decision to make The Monster speak, but was overruled. Since he was required to speak in this film, Karloff was not able to remove his partial bridgework as he had done to help give the Monster his sunken cheek appearance in the first Frankenstein (1931). That's why The Monster appears fuller of face in the sequel. -Not long before filming began, Colin Clive broke a leg in a horse riding accident. Consequently, most of Henry Frankenstein's scenes were shot with him sitting. -Cinematographer John Mescall presented a problem with his drinking, so serious the studio had to provide a car to get him safely to and from the set. Nevertheless, he was very good at his job, even when drunk, and James Whale liked that he worked fast and rarely wasted time fussing with incidental camera and lighting hardware. #classicsuggestions #movietrivia #halloweenclassicsuggestions #jameswhale #boriskarloff #elsalanchester #colinclive #valeriehobson

#brideoffrankenstein #trivia 🎬 -When filming the scene where the monster emerges from the burnt windmill, Boris Karloff slipped and fell into the water-filled well. Upon being helped out, it was discovered that he had dislocated a hip in the fall. The hip was strapped into place and Karloff soldiered on. He continued to receive massage and heat treatments for the hip for the rest of the shooting of the film. -Elsa Lanchester never receives on screen credit as "The Bride". The character is listed as being played by "?". -Elsa Lanchester was not the only person to have a dual role in this film. In addition to her role as Minnie, Una O'Connor also appeared in the prologue, as Shelley's maid who is holding the leash as the dogs go off screen. #classicsuggestions #movietrivia #halloweenclassicsuggestions #jameswhale #boriskarloff #elsalanchester #colinclive #valeriehobson

#brideoffrankenstein #trivia 🎞 -Censors caused Pretorious' derogatory line about "fairy tales" to be changed to "Bible stories," but once they saw the sneering contempt which Ernest Thesiger loaded into his delivery of these two words, they wished they had left the original script unchanged. -Valerie Hobson, who plays Dr. Frankenstein's fiancé/bride in the film, was only 17 years old when she appeared in the film (Colin Clive, who portrayed Henry Frankenstein, was 35.) -Elsa Lanchester's shock hairdo was held in place by a wired horsehair cage. #classicsuggestions #movietrivia #halloweenclassicsuggestions #jameswhale #boriskarloff #elsalanchester #colinclive #valeriehobson

Pierce altered the make-up of Frankenstein's monster from this film's predecessor to reflect that he had survived the mill fire at the end of Frankenstein (1931) with some flesh burns and with much of his hair singed off. -Colin Clive's alcoholism had worsened since the first film, but James Whale did not recast the role because his "hysterical quality" was necessary for the film. -The film was shot entirely in the studio. #classicsuggestions #movietrivia #halloweenclassicsuggestions #jameswhale #boriskarloff #elsalanchester #colinclive #valeriehobson

#thebrideoffrankenstein #trivia 📚 -Elsa Lanchester was only 5'4" but for the role was placed on stilts that made her 7' tall. The bandages were placed so tightly on her that she was unable to move and had to be carried about the studio and fed through a straw. -Shot in 46 days at a cost of approximately $400,000. -Several scenes were cut after censor's objections. References to the scandalous sexual arrangements of Mary, Shelley, and Byron were eliminated, particularly the line of dialogue: "We are all three infidels, scoffers at all marriage ties, believing only in living freely and fully." Breen's office also objected to shots they considered too revealing of Elsa Lanchester's cleavage in the prologue. #classicsuggestions #movietrivia #halloweenclassicsuggestions #jameswhale #boriskarloff #elsalanchester #colinclive #valeriehobson

#brideoffrankenstein #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. -Due to his overwhelming fame as a "thriller" actor, Boris Karloff was billed simply as "Karloff" - no first name needed. -According to Elsa Lanchester, her Bride make-up took three hours for her face alone, and Boris Karloff's took five. #classicsuggestions #movietrivia #halloweenclassicsuggestions #jameswhale #boriskarloff #elsalanchester #colinclive #valeriehobson

MOVIE 15: BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935) - #JamesWhale took the best elements of his original and expanded upon them to create what is possibly the finest sequel in the history of #horror films. Now that the #creature had been given a voice and more to do than kill, #Karloff was able inject him with even more pathos, so that by the end we feel even more sorry for him than we did in the first place. There's even a moment where he's crucified by the villagers before being carted off to jail, a not-so-subtle Jesus parallel. Another treat here is the eccentric performance of #ErnestThesiger as the interloping #DrPretorius, who convinces #Frankenstein to build a #Bride for his original creation based on some experiments and research of his own. And of course there's the iconic (and strangely sexy) Bride herself, #ElsaLanchester. It is a tribute to this film's status in the history of cinema that a character that spends literally two minutes in the film has become so ingrained in the pop culture consciousness. #NowWatching #31DaysOfHalloween #BrideOfFrankenstein #UniversalMonsters @officialuniversalmonsters #UniversalPictures @universalpictures #ColinClive #UnaOConnor #classicfilm

Halloween Spooktacular #8: The Bride Of Frankenstein(1935), directed by James Whale, is superior to its predecessor in every single way. Everything form the story, characters, and the direction is so much better here. Colin Clive gives another great performance as the mad doctor and Boris Karloff is even better here as the monster. He gives a more human and heart felt performance as well as having so much to do in the story. Both Clive and Karloff do enough new to make It feel like they are not just retreading the original. The story is miles above the original with a more emotionally charged adventure with better writing and less annoying/pointless characters. The sets and costume design are a good as ever here if not better. The Bride in particular is beautifully designed. Another thing that gets improved here is the direction. You can see, between the 2 films, how much filming technology has improved with the 4 year gap. Whale uses a lot more wider shots here that benefits everything from the beautiful sets to shadows that encompasses them. The only minor bumps the film run into is that films title is a little misleading. The story is more about the journey to make the bride and she is only in the film for like 5 minutes. There is also less of Colin Clive in this film, which is a bummer since his performance is so amazing, and he is missing for most of the 2nd act. Other than those nitpicks this such a grand and epic sequel. It is better in every single way. It has more heart/ emotion than its original and has a climax that will leave you breathless. It not just the best classic monster movie of all time it is also one of the best squeals of all time. Get your pitchforks and torches ready because of this The Bride of Frankenstein gets an A. #frankenstein #thebrideoffrankenstein #colinclive #boriskarloff #jameswhale #classichorror #monstermovies #halloween #halloweenspooktacular

MOVIE 10: FRANKENSTEIN (1931) - This is another one of my favorite movies. #Dracula was the first of the @officialuniversalmonsters that I got to experience, but, because of #BorisKarloff's immortal performance, the titular #Doctor's creation has always been my favorite. I never refer to him as a monster. He's not. Much like the admittedly very different creation of the novel, he's a machination shunned based on his outward appearance, forced to lash out at a society and a "father" that refuses to allow a place for him in this life he didn't ask for. This is the lot of all misfits, black sheep, and outcasts, and as one of those in a lot of ways, I've always felt a deep kinship and love for the poor soul, whether it be #Shelley's articulate scholar or Karloff's hulking dullard, who just wanted to see if #LittleMaria would float, too. #NowWatching #31DaysOfHalloween #Frankenstein #UniversalMonsters #JamesWhale #ColinClive #EdwardVanSloan #DwightFrye #classicfilm #UniversalPictures @universalpictures

Halloween Spooktacular #5: Frankenstein(1931), Directed by James Whale, is a classic horror film with a surprising amount of filler throughout. First off the title character of Henry Frankenstein is played fantastically by Colin Clive. He brings so much energy to the roll and chews up every scene that he is in. Frankenstein’s monster, played by Boles Karloff, is played beautifully sad and the makeup for him is incredible. The set designs are also incredible and are what we think of when we think of Frankenstein. This film is also well shot with nice stubble direction that brings out every shadow. Lastly, there are so many iconic scenes and lines that any film/ monster buff will salivate over. However, in between those scenes there is a lot of filler throughout the film. In the films 70 minute runtime I found myself checking what time it was or wishing for the next monster scene more then a hand full of times. This is partly do to the characters. Beside Frankenstein and the monster themselves, the rest of the characters really do noting of importance. Add on top of that an ending that felt rushed as well as characters surviving the impossible and you have an incredibly iconic but flawed film. The performances of our main characters and the historic scenes will get you through most of the problems but you will still notice them every so often. Because of all this Frankenstein gets a C+. #frankenstein #colinclive #boriskarloff #classichorror #monsterfilms #halloween #halloweenspooktacular

Frankenstein How dangerous is the acquirement of knowledge Like most scientists, Dr. Henry Frankenstein is very secretive about his work but his latest experiment requires him to be extra cautious, he believes he has discovered the key to create life from lifelessness, after several small experiments, he has been acquiring body parts via various methods & as built himself a man, all he needs now is the power from the oncoming storm to make it alive. This iconic 1931 film based on the Mary Shelley book is an absolute classic of the horror genre & although it is nearly 90 years old, it has lost none of its power or impact, one scene in particular involving a child is still a little shocking. Filmed in glorious black & white by James Whale & Arthur Edeson, not a single second of its short running time is wasted with each scene beautifully crafted such as the opening cemetery scene through to the resurrection in the laboratory to the thrilling finale in the burning windmill. Former silent movie star Boris Karloff (who was uncredited at the time) is fantastic as the creature, successfully expressing so much emotion through the iconic Jack Pierce makeup - which is still utilised today. #Frankenstein #BorisKarloff #JamesWhale #ArthurEdeson #MaryShelley #CarlLaemmleJr #JackPierce #ColinClive #FrederickKerr #MaeClarke #BernardKaun #UniversalPictures #FrankensteinOrTheModernPrometheus #Horror #ItsAlive

#frankenstein #trivia 🎞 -After bringing the monster to life, Dr. Frankenstein uttered the famous line, "Now I know what it's like to BE God!" The movie was originally released with this line of dialogue, but when it was re-released in the late '30s, censors demanded it be removed on the grounds that it was blasphemy. A loud clap of thunder was substituted on the soundtrack. The dialogue was partially restored on the video release, but since no decent recording of the dialogue could be found, it still appears garbled and indistinct. The censored dialog was partially returned to the soundtrack in the initial "restored version" releases. Further restoration has now completely brought back this line of missing dialog. A clean recording of the missing dialog was reportedly found on a Vitaphone disc (similar to a large phonograph record). Modern audio technology had to be used to insert the dialog back into the film without any detectable change in the audio quality. -Boris Karloff is considered a late bloomer in Hollywood. Frankenstein (1931) premiered when he was 44 years old. -According to film historian Gregory W. Mank, director James Whale was jealous of the attention Boris Karloff's monster was getting during production and took revenge by making the actor carry Colin Clive up the mountain to the mill in take after take dozens of times. Clive felt badly for his co-star and suggested that a dummy be used. Whale refused, and Karloff continued to have to carry Clive's 6'0', 154-lb. body in succeeding takes. #jameswhale #colinclive #maeclarke #boriskarloff #johnboles #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions

#frankenstein #trivia 📽 -Child actress Marilyn Harris had done several takes of the drowning scene, none of which turned out quite right. Although wet and tired, she agreed to do one last take of the scene, the one that appears in the finished film, after director James Whale promised her anything she wanted if she would do so. She asked for a dozen hard-boiled eggs, her favorite snack. Whale gave her two dozen. The DVD commentary for the film suggests that Harris wasn't actually a good swimmer, quoting Harris as saying that she had only a couple of swimming lessons before filming and had never dived under water before. -Technically not conceived as a "horror" movie, since the term "horror" as a film genre was first used in 1934. -The opening credits list the novel's author as "Mrs. Percy B. Shelley" rather than "Mary Shelley" as she is now credited. #jameswhale #colinclive #maeclarke #boriskarloff #johnboles #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions

#frankenstein #trivia 🎬 -In rejecting the role of the monster--a decision he came to deeply regret--Bela Lugosi reportedly claimed the he was a star in his own country, and did not come to America "to be a scarecrow." -Ken Strickfaden, who created all the electrical effects for the movie, also doubled for Boris Karloff during the sequences that showed the million volt sparks playing over his body. The same machines were later used in the comedy Young Frankenstein (1974), and director Mel Brooks gave Strickfaden the onscreen credit he had not received in this film. -The casting of the monster was the most difficult aspect of the casting process. James Whale happened to spot Boris Karloff in the Universal commissary and passed him a note offering a screen-test, which Karloff jumped at. Karloff later joked that he was offended by being viewing as such an ugly character, since on the day that Whale spotted him, he was wearing his most elegant suit and thought he was looking handsome. #jameswhale #colinclive #maeclarke #boriskarloff #johnboles #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions

#frankenstein #trivia 🎭 -The popular image of Frankenstein's monster as green-skinned was sourced in this film. Jack P. Pierce's applied a grayish-green greasepaint for the Monster's skin that appeared as a deathly pale gray tone on black and white film. This contrasted with the gray values of the normal characters in the movie. The one exception was the use of a much darker color on the Monster's exposed arm - representing dead, black flesh - prior to it being brought to life. -The movie's line "It's alive! It's alive!" was voted as the #49 movie quote by the American Film Institute (out of 100). -While preparing to film the scene where the monster attacks Elizabeth, Mae Clarke admitted to Boris Karloff' that she was worried that when she saw him in full makeup coming towards her, she might really be frightened. Karloff told her that throughout the scene he would wiggle his pinkie finger out of sight of the camera so that she could always see that, despite the horrific makeup, she could always see her friend Boris waving at her and letting her know that she was safe. #jameswhale #colinclive #maeclarke #boriskarloff #johnboles #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions

#frankenstein #trivia ⚡️ -The first film to use the famous Castle Thunder sound effect. -A 20-minute test reel, starring Bela Lugosi as the monster and directed by Robert Florey, was filmed on the Dracula (1931) sets. This footage has not been seen since 1931 and is now considered lost. Only a poster, featuring the vague likeness of Bela Lugosi as a 30 feet colossus, remains. -In one scene, the Monster (Boris Karloff) walks through a forest and comes upon a little girl, Maria, who is throwing flowers into a pond. The monster joins her in the activity but soon runs out of flowers. At a loss for something to throw into the water, he looks at Maria and moves toward her. In all American prints of the movie, the scene ends here. But as originally filmed, the action continues to show the monster grabbing Maria, hurling her into the lake, then departing in confusion when Maria fails to float as the flowers did. This bit was deleted because the censors objected to the violent end of the little girl. This scene is restored in the DVD reissue. #jameswhale #colinclive #maeclarke #boriskarloff #johnboles #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions

#frankenstein #trivia 🌸 -The monster make-up design by Jack P. Pierce is under copyright to Universal through the year 2026, and licensed by Universal Studios Licensing, Inc. -According to the TLC network program The Hunt for Amazing Treasures (1996), a unique six-sheet poster for this film, showing Karloff as The Monster menacing Mae Clarke, is worth at least $600,000 (US) and is possibly the most valuable movie poster in the world. The only known (original) copy is owned by a private collector. -While preparing to film the scene where the monster attacks Elizabeth, Mae Clarke admitted to Boris Karloff' that she was worried that when she saw him in full makeup coming towards her, she might really be frightened. Karloff told her that throughout the scene he would wiggle his pinkie finger out of sight of the camera so that she could always see that, despite the horrific makeup, she could always see her friend Boris waving at her and letting her know that she was safe. #jameswhale #colinclive #maeclarke #boriskarloff #johnboles #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions

Happy October 1st! Day 1: Frankenstein, 1931. I’ve done plenty of art with The Monster before but never the actual dude who the story is named after, so here! #Halloweenenfang2018 #drfrankenstein #colinclive #frankenstein #jameswhale #universalmonsters

#frankenstein #trivia 👻 -A microphone was placed in the coffin used in the funeral scene to amplify the sound of the grave dirt hitting the lid. -During production there was some concern that seven-year-old Marilyn Harris, who played Maria, the little girl thrown into the lake by the creature, would be overly frightened by the sight of Boris Karloff in costume and make-up when it came time to shoot the scene. When the cast was assembled to travel to the location, Marilyn ran from her car directly up to Karloff, who was in full make-up and costume, took his hand and asked "May I drive with you?" Delighted, and in typical Karloff fashion, he responded, "Would you, darling?" She then rode to the location with "The Monster." -Boris Karloff's shoes weighed 13 pounds each. #jameswhale #colinclive #maeclarke #boriskarloff #johnboles #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions

#frankenstein #trivia 🎃 -The Monster in this film does not physically resemble the character in Mary Shelley's novel. It was make-up artist Jack P. Pierce who came up with innovations such as the Monster's flat head, the bolts through the neck, the droopy eyelids, and the poorly-fitted suit. Any future Frankenstein film that features any of these physical abnormalities is taking its inspiration from Pierce's make-up work. -Boris Karloff was considered as such an anonymous actor by Universal that he was not invited to the December 6th premiere. -Actor Edward Van Sloan, who played Dr. Waldman in the film, appeared in the now-lost test reel with Bela Lugosi as the Monster. In an interview conducted shortly before his death, Van Sloan remembered that Lugosi's makeup resembled The Golem, with a large broad wig and "a polished clay-like skin." #jameswhale #colinclive #maeclarke #boriskarloff #johnboles #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions
