Son of Frankenstein

Basil Rathbone plays the baron's offspring, taking up dad's work where he left off. This 1939 feature, the third in the Universal series, is a strangely literary and leisurely monster movie, laced with amusing gothic doodles by director Rowland V. Lee. With Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, and Lionel Atwill.
