Everybody's favorite monster, along with actor Colin Clive
Ah, October is here, that month when everybody starts thinking of horror because Halloween is at the end of the month. TCM is starting tonight, with the classic 1931 Frankenstein at 8:00 PM. It's the jumping off point for a dozen Frankenstein movies, airing every Sunday in prime time in October on TCM.
The 1931 version is the one everybody remembers, but of course it's not original in that it's based on the novel by Mary Shelley. That having been said, it's not even the original movie version. Much like there was a two-reel version of Ben-Hur in the first decade of the last century, there was also a two-reel version of Frankenstein about that early. (At least the Frankenstein story was already in the public domain.) That 1910 version of Frankenstein survives and can be seen on Youtube:
