Bride of Frankenstein
Movie Quote Quiz

Henry Frankenstein: Oh, what a wonderful vision it was. I dreamed of being the first to give to the world - the secret that God is so jealous of: the formula for life. Think of the power - to create a man - and I did. I did it! I created a man - and who knows, in time, I could have trained him to do my will. I could have built a race. I might even have found the secret of eternal life.

Minnie: It's alive. The Monster. It's alive! Ohhh-ohhh.

Minnie: I'd hate to find him under my bed at night. He's a nightmare in the daylight, he is.

Minnie: Nobody'd believe me! All right. I wash me hands of it. They can all be murdered in their beds.

Hans' Wife: Come back Hans! You will be burned yourself. Maria drowned to death and you burned up, what should I do then? Awwwww.

Doctor Pretorius: Sometimes I have wondered whether life wouldn't be much more amusing if we were all devils, no nonsense about angels and being good.

Doctor Pretorius: We shall drink to our partnership. Do you like gin? It is my only weakness.

Doctor Pretorius: You and I have gone too far to stop. Nor, can it be stopped so easily.

Doctor Pretorius: Isn't it amazing, Henry? Lying here, within this skull, is an artificially developed human brain. Each cell, each convolution - ready. Waits for life to come.

Minnie: It's Doctor Pretorius. He says he wants to see the Master. Most insistent.
Henry Frankenstein: Pretorius?
Minnie: He's a very queer looking old gentleman, sir. I must see you on a secret, grave matter, he said. Tonight. Alone.
Henry Frankenstein: Bring him in.
Elizabeth: Henry, who is this man?
Minnie: Doctor Pretorius.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film the Monster tells Dr. Frankenstein, to leave. The Doctor and his fiancee run off. The Monster grabs a lever and says "We stay, we belong dead." He pulls the lever which blows up the castle. If you look to the left of the screen as the roof is collapsing, you can see Dr. Frankenstein knocked out on the stairs. Seconds later they cut to the Doctor and his fiancee running to safety outside the castle. It turns out in the original ending Universal killed the doc, but it tested poorly with audiences. They probably wanted a happy ending so they did a new ending where the doc lived, but they could not afford to blow up that castle again.

Question: How were the special effects of the miniature people in the glass displays accomplished?

Answer: From "Behind the Camera - Bride of Frankenstein": "Special effects experts John Fulton and David S. Horsley spent two days shooting Dr. Pretorius' miniature beings. The actors were placed in full-sized bell jars set against black velvet. These shots were meticulously lined up to match them with shots of Ernest Thesiger, Colin Clive and the interior set."
