'Frankenstein' film clip turns up in Vatican archives

Catholic World News - December 30, 2011

A frame from the 1931 horror film Frankenstein has been discovered in the Vatican archives, the ANSA news agency reports.

Vatican researchers have no explanation for how the film frame came to be in the Vatican collection. But when they discovered it, unmarked, they quickly recognized it as belonging to the classic film starring Boris Karloff.

    In the film, the first words spoken as the monster is animated are by Dr Frankenstein who shouts "Oh, in the name of God! Now I know what it feels like to be God!".
