FRANKENSTEIN: THE TRUE STORY (uk, '7?)

Post by Wallace on Tue Jan 31, 2017 11:56 pm

There has been at least  three "true" movie adaptions of this.

Okay, you know the monster was not Frankenstein. It was just called "the monster" (but later it names itself "Legion"). But did you know that according to Mary Shelley's book, Dr. Frankenstein was not the rightfull creator of the monster? He was more of an assistant.
Two blokes were working on the theory . One (played by David McCallum) used electricity, the familiar Hollywood way, to spark-jump the creature to life. The other, Dr Polydori (played by James Mason) was mortal afraid of electricity & lightning and devised a more elegant chemical man-sized aquarium method of creating life. The female was created by this method and it wasn't irreversable, as it was with the male.

Great cast albiet bit roles: John Gilguid, Ralph Richardson, Jane Seymour, Agnes Moorhead,the good Dr Who....

John William Polidori was Lord Byron's personal physician. He wrote the very first vampire novel. (Not Bram Stoker as most would have it.)

On Lake Geneva, Switzerland  at Byron's house Mary Godwin met her future husband, poet Percy Shelley.

Byron suggested they all write a supernatural story/novel. That is how Frankenstein, and Polidori's "The Vampyre" was born.

Polidori's sister married Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

Small world back then.

First thing first: you NEVER contradict a prog masterman, even if the subject is not prog.

2/ a prog masterman does not have to justify himself - ever.


3/ You all never asked what supernatural work Byron or Shelley contributed to the challange.

4/ Im not talking to youse anymore.
