Elsa Lanchester in her Iconic role as The Bride of Frankenstein
I have always considered Elsa Lanchester’s Bride of Frankenstein to be one of the most iconic characters in the history of film. Phenomenal when you consider…
- She’s the only female monster from the collection of classic horror films by Universal Studios.
- She’s only briefly (very briefly unfortunately) even in the movie!
And yet, the Bride and her phenomenally talented portrayer are as known as any of the monsters, present or past! The next time you watch The Bride of Frankenstein, pay close attention to her every movement and expression. With an extremely limited amount of screen time, she puts on an acting clinic. In the words of a very good song… Every little thing she does is magic.
