Frankenstein (1931 film)
Frankenstein was a 1931 horror film starring Boris Karloff, based on the novel Frankenstein, about a scientist who animates a corpse sewn together from various (stolen) body parts. Due to an error made by his assistant, Fritz, played by character actor Dwight Frye, Victor Frankenstein places a criminal's brain inside the creature, causing it to become a murderous monster. It hangs Fritz and escapes, going on a rampge. The monster later kidnaps Victor and is chased by the local townsfolk into an old windmill. Victor is pushed out the window, but survives because several people caught him after his fall was broken by hitting one of the windmill's blades. The people set the windmill on fire, destroying it and, apparently, the monster inside.
