Has anyone found the link to the YouTube version? It's mentioned in that blog entry, but I can't find it.
EDIT: I went ahead and uploaded a copy myself... with permission from composer Donald Sosin!

Btw, I initially got a Cloudflare timeout if I tried to download the 2.3GB file from the LOC page, but I was able to get the download going by right-clicking directly on the link and choosing "Save link as..." or whatever prompt your web browser offers: https://cdn.loc.gov/service/mbrs/ntscrm ... 434673.mov
thank you so much.
This restored version looks so great, and the score by Donald Sosin is excellent!.

For fun/study, I created this edit with all the creation shots playing together- It then also plays in reverse. Of course, this gives the impression that Frankenstein's creation stayed in the oven a little too long - poor thing :mrgreen: Interesting to note that the Charles Ogle-looking dummy catches fire in the first 3 frames of the last creation shot - this is more apparent in the reverse.
Film making hasn't changed a bit in a 108 years! All joking aside, that scene is still quite effectively creepy as heck.

But, being an LoC production, isn't the recording public domain? Nobody needs permission.

I'm also having trouble downloading this, even with a download manager. Any chance that anyonne was able to get it ?

Good question. Sosin asked that I credit him for the music. That's often not public domain even though the video itself is.

Fair enough, He...Donald Sosin does deserve credit for the music.

In Mr. Weibel's book, Alois mentioned that the "The End" title card was missing from the print. Anyone have a good idea of what it looked like?

EDIT: I've heard from some knowledgeable people that the film likely had no "The End" title card, and probably ended just as the Library of Congress version shows.

Another way to view the film - stabilization, cleanup, and an alternate modern soundtrack. Enjoy!
