Frankenstein Created Woman behind-the-scenes shots

Adrian Salmon just alerted me through his Bloody Hell of Brit Horror Group of this wonderful (but silent) clip showing behind-the-scenes, well, scenes of Peter Cushing on the set of Frankenstein Created Woman, reading his manuscripts, getting his hair done, giving Susan Denberg a peck on the cheek, discussing the shots with director Terence Fisher and Thorley Walters etc. A more detailed description of this clip can be read on the Pathe website where this was first posted.

Some more Cushing related clips can be found here.

Thanks so much for this - wonderful! Cushing always annotated his scripts so carefully and in such detail.

Such a shame about Susan Denberg - hope she's living a contented life now.

Thanks again
Watching Hammer

Yeah, I love those details showing Cushing's meticulous preparations and all the other bits and pieces associated with the making of this classic. Also nice as usual to see the Bray buildings.

What fantastic footage! I could just watch it over and over. I dream of coming across stuff like this (and I mean literally). What wouldn't I give to have been there!

I know what you mean about watching it all over as I have literally done that since discovering that footage a few days ago. LOL

Having just watched the film a few days ago on TCM this footage is wonderful to watch. I just wish the interior shots also included Susan Denberg.
Now to find footage of Denberg's undubbed dialogue. :)
