In "Bride of Frankenstein" (dir. James Whale, 1935) one can't help but feel for the Monster (Karloff. He's thwarted at every attempt of a peaceful existence. His creator, Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive), reluctantly helps devise a bride for his earlier creation, helping the devious Septimus Pretorious, the guy who really put the "mad" in mad doctor. And of course the female creature they piece together (Elsa Lanchester) wants nothing to do with the Monster, and why should see? She sees him as a beast, as everyone else does, and not the gentle giant who was kind to the old blind man.
