Though not in the set, this between takes shot of Karloff as The Monster is one of my favorites.

I saw a midnight screening of a restored print of Bride of Frankenstein early this year and it was an amazing experience. It's such a lovely/bizarre/dark film, I'm amazed they released it in the 30s. The christian imagery is jarring (in a good way), and you do feel for the monster when the bride, the girl made just for him, rejects him the minute she sees him.

This is stunningly cool. I've seen most of these stills over the years, but the quality of these and having them all in one place is a treat. Thanks!
