More Movie Taglines:
- Victor Frankenstein: It's alive. It's alive!
The Creature: What kind of people is it in which I am comprised? Good people? Bad people? Victor Frankenstein: Materials. Nothing more. The Creature: You're wrong. [Picks up recorder] The Creature: Did you know I knew how to play this? From which part of me did this knowledge reside? From this mind? From these hands? From this heart? And reading and speaking. Not so much things learned as things remembered. Victor Frankenstein: Slight trace waves in the brain perhaps. The Creature: Did you ever consider the consequences of your actions? You made me, and you left me to die. Who am I? Victor Frankenstein: You? I don't know. The Creature: And you think that I am evil.
The Creature: I keep my promises.
The Creature: I'd keep my promises if I were you.
Victor Frankenstein: You do speak! The Creature: Yes, I speak, and read, and think, and know the ways of men.
- Robert De Niro studied stroke victims to get a purchase on speech that is struggling to emerge.
The amniotic fluid in which the Creature was brought to life was really boiling jello. During filming, De Niro and Branagh slipped and fell in the stuff so much that a huge split appeared in De Niro's monster suit, which had to be avoided by the cameras.
Gérard Depardieu and Andy Garcia were early suggestions for the role of the Creature.
Fay Ripley filmed a small role, she was bitten by Robert De Niro, but her scenes never made the final cut.
Kenneth Branagh apparently banned the term "Monster" from the set. He insisted that everyone refer to DeNiro's character the way he was identified in the credits, as "The Sharp-Featured Man".
