Frankenstein, 1927

 

Peggy Webling's 1927 stage adaptation of the novel was the basis for the most famous Frankenstein movie of all, Frankenstein (1931), directed by James Whale, starring Boris Karloff and Colin Clive. The play's success on its original run in 1927 was continued in a 1930 revival, which first brought it to the attention of Universal Pictures.
