FIRST FILM ADAPTATION OF FRANKENSTEIN HAS BEEN RESTORED

 The Library of Congress has restored the first film adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, an Edison production from 1910. As proof that special effects were used more than 100 years ago to promote films, here’s how the Edison company described their Frankenstein: “To those who are not familiar with the story, we can only say that the film tells an intensely dramatic story by the aid of some of the most remarkable photographic effects that have yet been attempted. The formation of the hideous monster from the blazing chemicals of a huge caldron in Frankenstein’s laboratory is probably the most weird, mystifying, and fascinating scene ever shown on a film.” You can watch the movie for free on YouTube
