Not only is this a formidable entry in the early Frankenstein flicks of the 30's, but I was delighted to discover that this was also the primary template that Mel Brooks followed when he directed his classic comedy "Young Frankenstein" (one of my all-time fave comedies).
Brooks took many elements from this film, from set design and characters, right down to certain scenes - such as the Inspector with the prosthetic arm playing darts with Dr. Frankenstein. The Mel Brooks connection made this film all the more enjoyable for me, but it is still pretty good, for the olden days. Plus you get three awesome performances from the three horror masters - Boris, Bela and Basil.
