Frankenstein (1931)

AFI #87 (1998 list)

Notable quotes:
"He's alive! He's alive! In the name of God! Now I know what it feels like to be God!"

Notable scenes:
Frankenstein playing with Maria (especially Maria's naivete).
Opening scene with Edward Van Sloan providing the disclaimer.

The ending left me feeling uneasy. Clearly he was unfit for society and was an unnatural creature, but did he deserve to be engulfed in flames? Frankenstein's monster was still an innocent.
