 “I’ll never play the monster again because I have sentimental affection for the character. I owe him so much that I owe him a little respect, a little rest”. -Boris Karloff after filming “Frankenstein 1970” in 1958.

Elsa Lanchester played “The Bride Of Frankenstein” in 1935.
During filming, Lanchester was wrapped in yards of bandage and  covered in heavy makeup. The stand-on-end hairdo was accomplished by  combing it over a wire mesh cage. Lanchester was in real agony with her  eyes kept taped wide open for long takes - and it showed in her looks of  horror. Her monster’s screaming and hissing sounds (based on the sounds  of Regents Park swans in London) were taped and then run backward to  spook-up the effect.
She was delightfully melodramatic and picturesque  as Wollstonecraft, and her bride would become iconic.
