Frankenstein (1931): Movie Review from the Ray Taylor Show
Dive into the classic horror genre with Ray Taylor as he revisits the monumental 1931 adaptation of "Frankenstein", brought to the silver screen under the adept direction of James Whale. This timeless tale, rooted in Mary Shelley's iconic 1818 novel "Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus", transitions from page to stage to film in a fascinating evolution, with this particular version drawing inspiration from Peggy Webling's 1927 play. Join Ray as he delves into the film's narrative, exploring the poignant tale of Henry Frankenstein (played by the talented Colin Clive), an impassioned scientist driven to the extremes of human exploration, as he endeavors to craft life from the remnants of the dead. But the heart of this film truly beats in the form of the iconic creature, immortalized by Boris Karloff's unforgettable portrayal and Jack Pierce's masterful makeup design. With a supporting cast that boasts names like Mae Clarke, Dwight Frye, and Edward Van Sloan, this iteration of "Frankenstein" remains a hallmark in the annals of horror cinema.
