This year marked the 100th anniversary of the first FRANKENSTEIN movie. No, it wasn't the one starring Boris Karloff! Filmed in 1910 and long thought a lost film until just recently, this short, one reel version was produced by the Edison Company (yes, that Charles Edison) and starred Charles Ogle as the monster. Here is the full-length version.
And, if you're in the mood for more silent horrors you can watch the orginal, Lon Chaney, Sr. full-length feature, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. Find it behind the MONSTER VIEWER tab under the MONSTER MOVIE WORLD title header. For a sneak peak, below is the famous unmasking scene.
