Bride of Frankenstein

Bride of Frankenstein is a 1935 horror film which is a sequel to the 1931 film Frankenstein. The movie tells the story of Doctor Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive), who is forced by his monster, played by Boris Karloff (billed simply as "Karloff", though this is an improvement over the original film, in which he was listed as "???") to build him a mate (Elsa Lanchester). The plot uses the parallel story of Doctor Frankenstein's marriage to the beautiful Elizabeth (Valerie Hobson).

The movie was adapted by William Hurlbut and John Balderston from Mary Shelley's earlier work (although she is uncredited). It was directed by James Whale.

The film has been selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.
