HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLIN CLIVE!
Born on January 20th, 1900, Colin Clive had a relatively short acting career, due to his death at the age of 37. Colin starred on both stage and film, and although only 3 of his films were actual horror films, we will always remember him as Dr. Henry Frankenstein in James Whale's Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein. Who could forget his wonderful performances in both films as Dr. Frankenstein, the man who made monsters! His performance as the Dr. Frankenstein set the stage for future portrayals of crazed scientists for years, much in the same way Bela Lugosi set the standard for Dracula. I would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to my favorite mad scientist!
