On his blog, Shadowplay, film critic David Cairns writes:
“One of the many agreeably odd things about the Edison Company’s 1910 FRANKENSTEIN is the way the story is told entirely in a series of intertitles, with the imagery merely fleshing out the textual description.”
This astute observation is followed by a very entertaining "reading" of the venerable film.
I also recommend Cairns' sharp and funny review of the distinctively Frankensteinian science-fiction thriller, The Colossus of New York (1958).
Shadowplay is always a great read.
