With I, Frankenstein in theatres, The Creature is sure to be on a lot of people's minds; and if you're in the UK, you'll soon get a chance to check out Michael Sarrazin in the role when 1970's TV movie Frankenstein: The True Story finally arrives to your shores.
One of the most acclaimed versions of Mary Shelley’s classic tale, Frankenstein: The True Story, featuring a stellar all-star cast including James Mason and Leonard Whiting, makes its UK DVD debut on 10 March 2014 thanks to Second Sight Films.
Originally airing on NBC in 1973, this much lauded film also stars David McCallum ("The Man From U.N.C.L.E."), Jane Seymour ("Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman"), Tom Baker ("Doctor Who"), Ralph Richardson (Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes), John Gielgud (Ghandi), Peter Sallis (Last of the Summer Wine), and Michael Sarrazin (They Shoot Horses, Don't They?; Feardotcom) as The Creature.
In 19th century England, Dr Victor Frankenstein (Whiting, Romeo and Juliet), bitter over his brother’s untimely death, voices his wish that men could have power over life and death. Following a chance encounter with Dr. Henry Clerval (McCallum), a surgeon experimenting in this very field, they join forces, and Victor achieves the impossible: the creation of life. He creates a handsome, highly intelligent young man (Sarrazin), but unforeseen problems and the involvement of evil scientist Dr. Polidori (Mason, North By Northwest) lead to shocking, unimaginable horror.
Bonus features includes an introduction by James Mason.
