Just in time for Halloween, the double feature of 1931’s Frankenstein and its 1935 sequel The Bride of Frankenstein on October 24th will reintroduce audiences to the famous story of brilliant scientist Henry Frankenstein and his experiments that re-animate a lifeless body into a dangerous creature that soon escapes. The sequel finds Dr. Frankenstein and his monster both alive; but a mad scientist, Dr. Pretorius, kidnaps Dr. Frankenstein’s wife and forces him to create a new female companion for the monster. The two films—both starring Boris Karloff—will be introduced by TCM Host Robert Osborne and will feature exclusive interviews conducted at this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival, including conversations with Karloff’s daughter Sara Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Jr. (son of the classic “Dracula” star), and Academy Award®-winning make-up artist Rick Baker.
The series continues on November 15 with a special 50th Anniversary screening of To Kill A Mockingbird, based on Harper Lee's 1961 Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Oscar® winner Gregory Peck plays Atticus Finch, a lawyer in a racially divided Alabama town in the 1930s. The event will feature a special TCM-produced introduction, interviews and historical commentary featuring TCM Weekend Daytime Host Ben Mankiewicz.
Tickets to the series are on sale now, and available at presenting theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com.
