About This Item
Dan Curtis, creator of the popular ABC vampire soap opera "Dark Shadows" (1967-1971), adapted and produced this version of the classic Mary Shelley 1818 novel with "Dark Shadows" screenwriter Sam Hall penning "Part 1" and screenwriter Richard Landau penning "Part 2."
Curtis' "Frankenstein" is a fairly faithful adaptation, shot with television broadcasts cameras, in Curtis' gothic soap opera style, with a memorable performance from Bo Svenson as the monster.
Though well received when aired, it was overshadowed by the Universal Television production "Frankenstein: The True Story," which aired in late 1973 on NBC.
