Frankenstein

Visible crew/equipment: When Dr Frankenstein asks to the monster to enter the room so that Dr Waldman can see him, you can see the shadow of the crew moving on a pillar as the camera follows them. (00:31:20)

Revealing mistake: When Dr. Waldman gives the monster an injection and the Monster is trying to get the torch out of Henry Frankenstein's hands, if you look closely, Boris Karloff's (the Monster) make-up begins to smoke when he is hit by the torch. (00:37:35)

More quotes from Frankenstein

Trivia: Universal Pictures originally wanted Bela Lugosi to play Frankenstein's monster since he had done such a great job playing Count Dracula earlier that year. But Bela turned the role down because he did not want to be 'hidden' under all that make-up. Yet 12 years later, Bela would play Frankenstein's monster in 1943 film 'Frankenstein meets the Wolf Man'.

Question: Why is Fritz the hunchback so openly hostile to the Monster?

Answer: Likely many reasons. It's a monster that is terrifying and dangerous. Bringing a stitched-together dead body back to life is probably an abomination to him, and he loathes and fears it.
