In this classic horror film, author Mary Shelley reveals to her husband that the tale of Frankenstein did not end as abruptly as many assume—there is more to the story. Dr. Henry Frankenstein is still alive and his monster did not perish in a fire, as most believed. As Dr. Frankenstein recovers, he is visited by his former mentor Dr. Pretorius, who wants to create a female mate for the monster in the hopes of starting a new man-made race. Bride of Frankenstein was selected for the National Film Registry in 1998 and is based on a subplot of the original Frankenstein novel by Shelley published 200 years ago.
