Audio problem: As Krogh fires his revolver at the monster, the sound is out of sync.
Son of Frankenstein (1939)
Ending / spoiler
Directed by: Rowland V. Lee
Starring: Boris Karloff, Basil Rathbone, Bela Lugosi, Lionel Atwill
Wolf von Frankenstein (Basil Rathbone) pushes the Creature (Boris Karloff) into molten lava that's in a cave below the laboratory. Wolf hands over the Frankenstein estate to the townspeople and leaves the country with his wife and son.
Baron Wolf von Frankenstein: It appears that my father thought that he could extract from lightning some super-violet ray of life-giving properties.
Trivia: Originally planned to be filmed in color but that was dropped. Some say it was because of the high costs of color film and cameras. Others say that the Karloff monster makeup, grey-green greasepaint worked for black and white lighting and filming, but looked ridiculous in color. There are surviving home movies made during the filming of Son, showing Karloff in his makeup and vest. You can decide if the right decision was made.
