The Creature, Revisited

I’ve cast my own reimagined version of the Frankenstein saga by cherry-picking three of my favorite performances from the many films made over the years.

Elsa Lanchester reprises her role from Bride of Frankenstein as Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, author of the source material and narrator/Greek Chorus in my retelling.

Michael Sarrazin is back as The Creature, offering the beauty and pathos he provided in Frankenstein: The True Story.

Finally, Gene Wilder is Baron Victor Frankenstein, with a less comical (but equally unhinged) turn than in Young Frankenstein.
