Friday's Fright Film Fact
Universal Studios was already considering making a sequel before Frankenstein (1931) was released. The ending of was changed so that Henry Frankenstein would survive the drop from the windmill. In the last scene we see Henry Frankenstein recovering in bed while his father offers a toast to the House of Frankenstein. The actor we see in the bed is not Colin Clive. Colin Clive had been released and was unable to return to shoot the scene when it was decided to change the ending.
