Seen it a million times on WNEW's Creature Features as a younger lad, not to mention WOR 9 in New York playing the Universal stuff to death.  Fun memories of good times!

Me and Tiana watched it! Of Karloffs Frankenstein films,this was in 3rd,behind the 1931 original and SON OF-because Karloff just lumbered around and Bela and Rathbone usurped him.
I seen it twice this month. I hadnt seen it since 1989.
I now am singing a differnt tune. BRIDE is the best of the series!
The movie has some definte black humor going (Ernest Thesiger is a hoot), whimsy (the miniture people--the King charecter was an inside joke by Whale-Elsa's husband had played HENRY THE VIII)-and much pathos on Karloffs part---though I love Lugosi-Karloff was the more subtle actor. Though in the RAVEN-when Lugosi unveils Karloffs ugly face in the room of mirrors and Karloff smashes them-he snarls just like the Monster!

BRIDE is the best, glad to see you've finally realized it!   Wink Thumbup 
SON OF FRANKENSTEIN is awesome and different than the first two.  Definitely my choice for the #2 spot in that series...

There's a lot in BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN.  One of my favorites.  KARLOFF's performance is most touching in the second film, probably his best performance in any film.  BRIDE by the way is also loaded with religious allegory.  Oh, and ELSA LANCHESTER played opposite her real-life husband CHARLES LAUGHTON as Henry VIII - she played Anne of Cleves.

At the end of BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN you can see COLIN CLIVE is still in the tower after the Monster pulls "the lever" and the laboratory starts to explode.  This was because Dr. Frankenstein was supposed to die at the end of this one, the end had already been shot as such, but preview audiences disliked the unhappy ending and the quick sequences of the Monster urging Victor Frankenstein to "Go!  Live!!" were added to satisfy audience demand.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
