Very good old horror movie in which a bride for Frankenstein is made. To me, this is not quite as good as Frankenstein, but it's close.

Bride of Frankenstein: The Best of the Bunch!

"Bride of Frankenstein" is probably the best of the Universal Frankenstein films of the 1930's and 1940's. Boris Karloff reprises the role for this film and manages to show a subtle evolution of the character, creating a sympathetic monster who longs for true friendship. Realizing that he will never find companionship among humans, he is encouraged by his creator's decision to make him a female mate. As you can imagine, this doesn't go as well as the monster had hoped.

As always, I monitoired the film for tobacco use. There are several pro-tobacco scenes in the film which teach the monster to associate smoking with friendship. I have written a detailed discussion of this on my website at: The film earned a Smo...
