Son of Frankenstein

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.


Revealing mistake: The landscape seen through the window of the train as the Frankensteins travel repeats itself several times.
