A Few Favorite Memories of Colin Clive
- As war-weary "Captain Denis Stanhope" in James Whale's trench warfare drama Journey's End (1930).
- As high-strung, nerve-shot "Dr. Henry Frankenstein," dreaming about cosmic rays, digging up graves, and showing generations
how it's done in Frankenstein (1931), directed by James Whale, and introducing Boris Karloff to monstrous immortality.
- As "Edward Rochester" in Jane Eyre (1934).
- Bringing "Dr. Henry Frankenstein" and another artificial corpse back to life in Bride of Frankenstein (1935), directed by James Whale,
even better than the first time!
- As "Stephen Orlac," a concert pianist who loses his hands in a train wreck, but gets them back... in a way... from the crazed surgeon (Peter Lorre)
who covets his wife in Mad Love (1935).
- As a painting of Henry Frankenstein admired by his son (Basil Rathbone) in Son of Frankenstein (1939).
