Ghost of Frankenstein, The (1942) [Last Updated: 11/10/03]
One of the best-loved feature creatures ever imagined returns to the screen in this witty and inventive cinematic gem featuring the talents of horror greats Lon Chaney as the monster, Sir Sedric Hardwicke as the twisted son of Dr. Frankenstein and Bela Lugosi as Frankenstein's dutiful but scheming laboratory assistant Ygor. When Ygor brings the monster to Frankenstein's country castle, the doctor decides that a brain transplant might be in order. While Frankenstein thinks the transplant should be of a healthy and sane brain, Ygor plots with Frankenstein's unscruplous colleague Dr. Bohmer (Lionel Atwill) to transplant Ygor's brain instead, so that he can rule the world using the monster's body. Their plan turns sour when the monster becomes malevolent and goes on a rampage in the nearest town. Perhaps the last creation of the classic horror film era, The Ghost of Frankenstein will delight fans of all ages with its sly humor and deliciously mischievous portrayals.

Also know as: Frankenstein's New Brain and The Trial of Frankenstein.
