Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley: An audience needs something stronger than a pretty little love story. So, why shouldn't I write of monsters?

Doctor Pretorius: Follow the lead of nature - or of God, if you like your Bible stories. Male and female created to them. Be fruitful and multiply. Create a race. A man-made race upon the face of the earth. Why not?

Hermit: And this is fire.
The Monster: Arrrrrrr.
Hermit: No! No. Fire is good.

Hermit: There is good. And there is bad.

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.
