The townspeople go after The Creature (Boris Karloff) because of Maria's death. Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive) confronts the Creature and is knocked out and taken to a windmill. The Creature tosses Henry and he survives. The townspeople burn the mill and it collapses on top of the Creature. Baron Frankenstein (Henry's father) watches over his son while he's recovering and gives a toast to his future grandson.

Revealing mistake: There is a large painted hanging cloth backdrop of clouds in the mountain scenes near the end of the film. Vertical streaks can be seen in the backdrop that are the pleats in the fabric. These streaks really stand out in the restored versions of the film.
