Edison's Frankenstein | [Frederick C. Wiebel, Jr.]

Edison's Frankenstein

The complete, tortuous story of the 1910 film version of Frankenstein is narrated in this 100th-anniversary edition. Everything you ever wanted to know about the classic first Frankenstein film and then some. This highly researched document begins in the dusty archives of Thomas A. Edison and follows a trail of evidence that leads through the tattered pages of pre-Hollywood film history. The story unfolds from the making of the film and its disappearance on to the actual rediscovery of the long-lost 1910 Frankenstein film starring Charles Ogle, Augustus Phillips, and Mary Fuller, and finally getting it released on DVD.

Publisher's Summary

The complete, tortuous story of the 1910 film version of Frankenstein is narrated in this 100th-anniversary edition. Everything you ever wanted to know about the classic first Frankenstein film and then some.

This highly researched document begins in the dusty archives of Thomas A. Edison and follows a trail of evidence that leads through the tattered pages of pre-Hollywood film history. The story unfolds from the making of the film and its disappearance on to the actual rediscovery of the long-lost 1910 Frankenstein film starring Charles Ogle, Augustus Phillips, and Mary Fuller, and finally getting it released on DVD.

Helped step-by-step with obscure Edison Manufacturing Co. documents and numerous rare photographs, many published for the very first time, this motion picture, its unknown impact on later Frankenstein films, and intertextuality are finally revealed and brought back to life.
