Trivia: The Bride has only 5 minutes of screen time.

Other mistake: It's the scene when Dr. Frankenstein's fiancee is being held hostage. To prove that she's all right, her captor allows her to talk to Dr. Frankenstein through a telephone type device. She's supposed to be tied up with her hands behind her back. But she pulls one arm from behind her for a fraction of a second, then tucks it back behind her 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."
