Additional Info

A pretty young woman in a low cut dress has something she must tell her date before she invites him in: she is obsessed with Frankenstein-- the old movies, the comic books, the original novel and the world of Shelley and Byron from which it evolved, and also the book of Genesis because the Frankenstein myth is one powerful manifestation of the creation story. Through the sheer force of her imagination and passion, she wants to become every person and every element in a created universe. This is a unusual showcase for an actress with energy, intelligence and charm.
