The Bride of Frankenstein turns 75 today

Happy anniversary! It was 75 years ago today, April 22, in 1935, that »Bride of Frankenstein« was released. Starring Boris Karloff, Colin Clive, Ernest Thesiger and Elsa Lanchester as the bride. It's my all-time favourite film and a good reason to continue the commission gallery with the model kit released by Billiken of Japan in the early 90ties. The likeness is uncanny, the body isn't. But its still the best rendering of Elsa available in the GK world.

Read more about the film and its history and all things Frankenstein in the wonderful FRANKENSTEINIA blog concieved by Pierre Fournier.
