To a new world of gods and monsters! We watched The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) with our good friend Mitchell Ralston and we forever Stan Elsa Lanchester as “The Monster’s Mate.” We take a trip through the “Universal Classic Monsters”catalogue and find out what makes this entry so queer. Mincing mad scientists, screeching hausfraus and ersatz domestic partnerships fill this gothic masterpiece, but it’s Lanchester’s brief performance that cements this movie in queer cinema history. The Bride did more for gays, goths and cholas with nothing more than 5 minutes of screen time, a shake and go wig and an eyebrow pencil than any of us could muster in a lifetime. They may belong dead but that face will live forever.
