The original Frankenstein film, produced by the Edison Company in 1910, has been restored and made available to view online.
Our senior consultant, Andrew Weltch, was invited by the Wordsworth Trust to write about it for the Romanticism Blog, which explores the Romantic poets, and the literature and culture of the period.
His post, published yesterday [January 1st 2019], the 201st anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s novel, reviews the film itself, and tells the fascinating story of its discovery and restoration.
You can read the post here, where you can also watch the full 12-minute film.
