EDISON 1910 FRANKENSTEIN MOVIE...



Believed for many years to have been lost, here's THOMAS
EDISON's 1910 movie of FRANKENSTEIN, starring CHARLES
OGLE as the Monster.  Note that, under his shock of hair, the Monster's
head appears flat in some scenes.  Did JACK P. PIERCE, who created
BORIS KARLOFF's look for the 1931 UNIVERSAL movie, base
that aspect of his design on the 1910 version, perhaps?  (Although
the movie was believed lost, photographic stills existed.)
