Four Daughters (1938)

One recent rainy/chilly Sunday afternoon, I sat down on the couch and made the decision as to what movie I should watch on the DVR. Well, I ended up choosing a black & white romance that I had never heard of before taping it on TCM. 698 more words

Ramble: Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

dir. James Whale
1935

“Bride of Frankenstein” is, at the very least, the perfect sequel. It works as a Frankenstein continuation, as horror, and as comedy. 2,484 more words

Ramble: Frankenstein (1931)

dir. James Whale
1931

It’s 1931, and Tod Browning’s “Dracula” is a huge hit. So where does Universal Studios go from there? Well, Mary Shelley’s classic horror, “Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus”, is the next logical stone to turn. 2,335 more words
