Frankenstein: The True Story (1973)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Frankenstein: The True Story (1973) This four hour movie is my favorite filmic version of the Frankenstein novel. Dr. Frankenstein, upset by the drowning death of his brother, is recruited by a fellow doctor (David MaCallum) who has discovered how to restore life with solar power. He ends up dying before they're able to bring back a reassembled corpse but Dr. Frankenstein puts his friend's brain in the body. In typical mad scientist fashion there's lots of explosions in the lab and the creature breaths to life. Instead of a horrendous monster, though, this creation looks perfect. Frankenstein is thrilled-and starts teaching him about civilization. But this all comes to an end when the creation starts to revert-growing bulbous sores, large teeth and a pronounced brow-ridge that makes him look like a caveman. Unable to deal with his transformation the monster hurls himself over a cliff. Time passes and Dr. Frankenstein marries-and an old gentleman introduces himself into their lives. This is Dr. Polidori (James Mason), who has also been doing experiments with regeneration and life creation. Polidori has also been sheltering the monster, who had survived the fall. Polidori talks Frankenstein into helping him bring a young woman back to life (Jane Seymour) through chemicals-and she turns out as perfect as the monster first was. But she's clearly evil. There's a confrontation between the two creations at a society party-and he rips off her head, throwing it in Polidori's lap. From then on the monster haunts his creator, until they end up in the North Pole for a final confrontation.
