When it comes to memorable characters in horror films, few are as heavily referenced and as recognisable as The Bride of Frankenstein. Like the original Frankenstein's monster, Elsa Lanchester's tortured profile in James Wale's classic Universal horror combines hollywood starlet looks, lightning...
