Edison’s Frankenstein – July 4th Special!

EF1Once thought lost forever the 1910, “Edison’s Frankenstein” is now available on DVD.

Who knew there was a version of the story of creation and redemption by Mary Shelly before the much more famous 1931 version starring Boris Karloff as the monster and directed by James Whale?

Along with this 19 minute silent gem comes an exhaustive 200 page study by Frederick C. Wiebel, Jr. of the film and the story behind this historic and elusive film.

Wiebel who lives in Hagertown MD, is an artist, author, and Firesign Theatre expert.

His story is almost as interesting as the search for this lost film.
