My tribute to Mary Shelley and her bride. While the "character" in the novel never amounted to more than a basket of body parts, the idea took root in people's imaginations ... giving us dozens of takes on the idea over the last century. This represents my favorite: Elsa Lanchester in 1935's "The Bride of Frankenstein." Even THERE we were only given a sample, with the Bride's screen time adding up to a few minutes at the end of the film. Note: The text on this images in a page of Shelley's manuscript for "Frankenstein" in her own hand. Printed on 11X17 glossy, text-weight paper.
