Elsa Lanchester in The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

Fun facts about “The Bride” :

  • "The Bride", the most obscure of Universal Studios’ Classic Monsters, is on screen for less than five minutes and is the only "Classic Monster" never to have killed anyone.

  • Elsa Lanchester’s shock hairdo was held in place by a wired horsehair cage.

  • Elsa Lanchester was only 5’4” but for the role was placed on stilts that made her 7’ tall. The bandages were placed so tightly on her that she was unable to move and had to be carried about the studio and fed through a straw.

  • Elsa Lanchester said that her spitting, hissing performance was inspired by the swans in Regent’s Park, London. “They’re really very nasty creatures,” she said. (x)
