KARLOFF AS THE MONSTER FROM
BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN
This is an enhanced life mask to honor BORIS KARLOFF in the role of THE
MONSTER from the film BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN.
Karloff recreated his most famous role for the second time in the Bride
of Frankenstein. How did the great Jack Pierce vary the make up for the
Bride Film? There are many differences that you can see in this mask. The
first is the burn scar on the right cheek from the final sequence of the
burning mill in Frankenstein . Another difference is the brain has easy
access. An open wound goes almost ear to ear across the top edge of the
head. It is kept closed by 2 large metal clips on the forehead and a bunch
of smaller staples. His hair is matted on the top and sides of his head
and does not come down over the forehead. This reveals more dead flesh.
Also, the forehead scar is jagged like a lightning bolt and not a slit.
Karloffs age also determines the look of Frankenstein in The Bride of Frankenstein.
This started as an actual life mask taken from the face of Boris Karloff
in the 30s. It has been sculpturally enhanced by artist Erick
Erickson to duplicate the Make up effects
created by Jack Pierce. This creates an accurate historic display that
is very impressive. Great for a Home Theater Room.
