Friday's Fright Film Fact

Frankenstein (1910) is the only Frankenstein that depicts the monster being created by using chemicals and potions. In all other Frankenstein films the monster was made by assembling body parts from corpses. The scene in which the monster is brought to life in the 1910 version was created by burning a paper mache dummy of the creature and then printing the scene in reverse. Although crude by today’s standards it was quite an achievement in 1910.
