The clip Victor and Elizabeth from Frankenstein (1931) with Colin Clive
Herr Victor Moritz.
I'm so glad you've come.
What is it, Elizabeth?
Oh, you've heard from Henry.
Yes. The first word in four months.
It just came.
Victor, you must help me.
Of course I'll help you.
I've read this over and over again, but they're just words that I can't understand.
"You must have faith in me, Elizabeth. Wait. "
"My work must come first, even before you. "
"At night, the winds howl in the mountains. "
"There is no one here. "
"Prying eyes can't peer into my secret. "
What can he mean?
What does he say then?
"I am living in an abandoned watchtower close to the town of Goldstadt. "
"Only my assistant is here to help me with my experiments. "
Oh. His experiments.
Yes, that's what frightens me.
The day we announced our engagement, he told me of his experiments.
He said he was close to a discovery so terrific that he doubted his own sanity.
There was a strange look in his eyes. Some mystery.
His words carried me right away.
Of course, I've never doubted him. But still, I worry. I can't help it.
And now this letter. All this uncertainty can't go on. I must know.
Victor, have you seen him?
Yes. About three weeks ago.
I met him walking alone in the woods. He spoke to me of his work, too.
I asked him if I might visit his laboratory.
He just glared at me and said he would let no one go there.
His manner was very strange.
Oh, what can we do?
If he should be ill!
Now, don't worry.
I'll go to Dr Waldman, Henry's old professor in medical school.
Perhaps he can tell me more about all this.
Victor, you're a dear.
You know I'd go to the ends of the earth for you.
I shouldn't like that. I'm far too fond of you.
