"FRANKENSTEIN" (1931): The Original Ending (video)

Director James Whale had a downbeat ending planned for his film, which included the death of Henry Frankenstein.

It would have looked something like this.

But the studio preferred a happier ending...and filmed one using stand-ins for Colin Clive (Henry) and Mae Clarke (Elizabeth).

James Whale is said to have liked the new ending, which he felt was fitting for his dark fairytale.  

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
