Bride of Frankenstein
Movie Quote Quiz

Henry Frankenstein: Oh, what a wonderful vision it was. I dreamed of being the first to give to the world - the secret that God is so jealous of: the formula for life. Think of the power - to create a man - and I did. I did it! I created a man - and who knows, in time, I could have trained him to do my will. I could have built a race. I might even have found the secret of eternal life.

Hans' Wife: Come back Hans! You will be burned yourself. Maria drowned to death and you burned up, what should I do then? Awwwww.

Doctor Pretorius: Sometimes I have wondered whether life wouldn't be much more amusing if we were all devils, no nonsense about angels and being good.

Doctor Pretorius: We shall drink to our partnership. Do you like gin? It is my only weakness.

Doctor Pretorius: You and I have gone too far to stop. Nor, can it be stopped so easily.

Doctor Pretorius: Isn't it amazing, Henry? Lying here, within this skull, is an artificially developed human brain. Each cell, each convolution - ready. Waits for life to come.

Minnie: It's Doctor Pretorius. He says he wants to see the Master. Most insistent.
Henry Frankenstein: Pretorius?
Minnie: He's a very queer looking old gentleman, sir. I must see you on a secret, grave matter, he said. Tonight. Alone.
Henry Frankenstein: Bring him in.
Elizabeth: Henry, who is this man?
Minnie: Doctor Pretorius.

Minnie: Doctor Pretorius? Pretorius? - - Wha-wha-what, what was the name?
Doctor Pretorius: Doctor Pretorius.

Elizabeth: Speak to me, Henry.
Minnie: Oh, my lady, he'll never speak again.
Elizabeth: I was foretold of this. I was told beware of my wedding night.
Minnie: Awwwww! Oh, look! My lady, he's alive! Awwww.
Elizabeth: Henry, darling.
Henry Frankenstein: Elizabeth.
Minnie: Oh, what a terrible wedding night.

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley: An audience needs something stronger than a pretty little love story. So, why shouldn't I write of monsters?

Doctor Pretorius: Follow the lead of nature - or of God, if you like your Bible stories. Male and female created to them. Be fruitful and multiply. Create a race. A man-made race upon the face of the earth. Why not?

Hermit: And this is fire.
The Monster: Arrrrrrr.
Hermit: No! No. Fire is good.
The Monster: Fire - no good. No.
Hermit: There is good. And there is bad.
The Monster: Good. Bad.

Minnie: It's alive. The Monster. It's alive! Ohhh-ohhh.

Other mistake: It's the scene when Dr. Frankenstein's fiancee is being held hostage. To prove that she's all right, her captor allows her to talk to Dr. Frankenstein through a telephone type device. She's supposed to be tied up with her hands behind her back. But she pulls one arm from behind her for a fraction of a second, then tucks it back behind her again.

Suggested correction: While some may see this as a gaffe, consider this: Elizabeth is quite resourceful. She has been tied up in the cave for some time and has been working on freeing herself from her bonds, to the point of success. As Karl attempts to cover her mouth, she has a moment of panic and almost gives away how close she is to escaping. Remember, she does escape and gets to the watch tower just in time to make a plea to Henry to leave with her to safety.

Question: How were the special effects of the miniature people in the glass displays accomplished?

Answer: From "Behind the Camera - Bride of Frankenstein": "Special effects experts John Fulton and David S. Horsley spent two days shooting Dr. Pretorius' miniature beings. The actors were placed in full-sized bell jars set against black velvet. These shots were meticulously lined up to match them with shots of Ernest Thesiger, Colin Clive and the interior set."
