The First Frankenstein Movie Was Made in Edison’s Bronx Studio… in 1910

We suppose the first film version of the unforgettable Mary Shelley novel Frankenstein could have a weirder pedigree… This 1910 film was written and directed by a guy named J. Searle Dawley and was shot in Thomas Edison’s studio! The part when the creature first comes alive is amazing.

We saw this over on Boing Boing. Watch the whole thing below the cut.
