The monster strikes back against his maker! Well, sort of… This is Boris Karloff goofing around with legendary makeup artist Jack Pierce, who created the iconic grotesque looks of Frankenstein’s monster, his bride, Imhotep the mummy, and Gwynplaine (from The Man Who Laughs, the inspiration for The Joker), among others.
Also note that this footage was not colorized; the makeup for Frankenstein’s monster, though photographed in black-and-white, really was this shade of green.
