Frankenstein tries to create a perfect human being but ends up creating a monster.

Anybody who has seen the famous still of Charles Ogle in the role of the monster has gotten a better look at the creature than you get in the movie. Pretty basic retelling of the legend, though the ending strays quite a ways from any of the other versions of the story and is probably far more convenient than sensible; the doctor gets off scot-free. The main plus here is an excellent soundtrack, which adds immeasurably to the proceedings.
