The popular image of Frankenstein's monster as green-skinned was sourced in this film. Actually, Jack P. Pierce's monster make-up gave the monster yellow skin, one of the few consistencies from Mary Shelley's original description of the monster.
It looks sort of gray to me. Hmmm
In the novel the creature is only vaguley described; 8 feet tall, powerfully built, yellow skinned, and horrendously ugly.

The method of animating the creature is never discussed in Mary Shelley's novel. In the book, Frankenstein, narrating, refuses to divulge how he did it so no one can re-create his actions. However, the use of lightning to resurrect the monster has become the accepted methodology and appears in virtually every Frankenstein movie since.
It does make for a ... shocking moment.
Smells like hot dogs...

Part of me can't imagine Lugosi in this role.

I know this scene with the girl was cut out of the original version because people thought it was too much. But it was reinserted on one of the rereleases.

That's about all I have. Laughing
