DADDY: What did you think of the movie? 

LILLY: I thought it was good.

DADDY: Did you think it was funny?

LILLY: A bit.

DADDY: Who was your favourite character?

LILLY: My favourite was the monster (Peter Boyle) because he just got the wrong brain and had he got the right one he would have been fantastic.

DADDY: The actor who plays him is Raymond's dad in Everybody Loves Raymond.

LILLY: Really?

DADDY: Yeah. I liked Frankenstein in this (Gene Wilder) but I love Igor (Marty Feldman) because he is so funny. I used make you laugh by pretending to be him.

DADDY: What was your favourite moment?

LILLY: Can I pick two.


LILLY: When Frankenstein's fiance (Madeline Khan) fancies the monster and the dance routine.

DADDY: Putting on the Ritz!. They are my favourite scenes too.

DADDY: Would you recommend it to your friends?


DADDY: I think you need to have seen and enjoyed the original Frankenstein movies to enjoy this properly.

LILLY: I agree.

DADDY: Yeah the scene with the blind man when he pours hot soup on him is much funnier if you have seen The Bride of Frankenstein (1935).

LILLY: Giggles.

DADDY: How many lightning bolts would you give it?

LILLY: Nine because it could have been a bit funnier.

DADDY: I'm giving it fifteen because I love it.

DADDY: Did you know they used the original laboratory equipment used in Frankenstein (1931)?


DADDY: I would love to have those in my room.

LILLY: As you wish.
