Frankenstein (1910)

The Best Short Films

Why Watch? There’s a lot of concern about what seems like a constant stream of remakes and re-imaginings, and while there are several excellent remakes to point to, I thought it would be interesting to look at the first version of something. Hailing from 102 years ago, this was the first motion picture version of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein,” a novel that has been made into so many films, that it’s difficult to think of any new versions as being “a remake.” Of course, it’s doubly fascinating that this film, directed by J. Searle Dawley, was made at Thomas Edison‘s film studio. Regardless of that bit of trivia, it’s an interesting historical artifact. What will it cost you? Only 12 minutes. Skip work. Watch more short films.
