One of the most acclaimed versions of Mary Shelley’s classic, "Frankenstein: The True Story", featuring a stellar all-star cast including James Mason and Leonard Whiting, makes its UK DVD debut this March thanks to Second Sight Films.
In 19th century England, Dr Victor Frankenstein (Whiting – Romeo and Juliet), bitter over his brother’s untimely death, voices his wish that men could have power over life and death. Following a chance encounter with Dr Henry Clerval (David McCallum - NCIS, The Man from UNCLE), a surgeon experimenting in this very field, they join forces and Victor achieves the impossible, the creation of life. He creates a handsome, highly intelligent young man (Michael Sarrazin – The Gumball Rally), but unforeseen problems and the involvement of evil scientist Dr Polidori (James Mason – North By Northwest, Salems Lot) lead to shocking, unimaginable horror.
Made in 1973 this much lauded film also stars Jane Seymour (Live and Let Die), Tom Baker (Doctor Who), Ralph Richardson (The Fallen Idol), John Gielgud (Ghandi) and Peter Sallis (Last of the Summer Wine) and will be released for the first time on DVD on 10 March 2014.
Bonus features on the disc include an introduction by James Mason.
