J. Searle Dawley
1910 • 14 Minutes • 1.33 :1 • United States
Edison Manufacturing Company
Cast: Augustus Phillips, Charles Ogle, Mary Fuller
Written by: J. Searle Dawley Based on Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Described as a "liberal adaptation" of the Frankenstein story by Edison, the film packs a lot into its 14 minute runtime. The film wastes no time in getting right to the good stuff, practically skipping right to the experiment. Instead of lightning bringing the monster to life, you see the monster materialize from skeleton to flesh. The special effects for the time are quite impressive and terrifying. The film is in the public domain, which you can check out below.
