There was actually a made for TV thing years and years ago with Leonard Whiting (he'd played Romeo) as Victor Frankenstein and Michael Sarrazin as the Monster. I think it purported to be more faithful.
There's also something with DeNiro as the Monster and I think Aidan Quinn as Victor that tried to be faithful to the book.
I think I remember this movie, it would have been on TV around 1974-1975 when I was about 7 or 8.
I remember it ending on a boat up in the Arctic like the book. Does anyone else remember this one and the name?
The monster looked more like a regular person and not like Herman Munster with bolts sticking out of his neck. It must have never been put out on video or DVD.
