Science and humanities professor Colin Milburn (UC Davis) and graduate student Wesley Jacks (UC Santa Barbara) explore the legacy of James Whale's iconic Bride of Frankenstein (1935). Their talk touches on key similarities and differences between Bride, Whale's earlier Frankenstein (1931) film, and the original Mary Shelley novel. In addition to exploring the narrative and formal components of each, Milburn and Jacks draw out the ethical conflicts that span and separate each text. Their discussion touches on the legacy of the film within the sci-fi genre, its still-compelling queer components, and the film's position within the sub-genre of gothic horror. Recorded on 10/18/2018. (#34292)
