* RevisedEnding: The well-known goof of Henry being present as the tower explodes was a simple matter of studio interference and budget constraints. As originally shot, Henry was to die at the end along with Pretorius, the monster, and the bride. But Universal demanded a happy ending, so Whale reshot the ending to show Henry escaping with Elizabeth. Notice that the contradictory scene where Henry is briefly seen is the one with the explosions and pyrotechnics going off. This was an expensive scene to shoot, and Whale wasn't given an adequate budget to reshoot it, so the original shot was retained.

The Bride of Frankenstein, despite her rather short screen time, is one of the eight official Universal Monsters alongside her "husband".

* DenserAndWackier: ''Bride Of Frankenstein'' might very well be the first self-aware horror film, and while it's still a dark film with deep themes and genuine terror, it also works as a black comedy. This was a huge change of pace from the original ''Film/{{Frankenstein|1931}}'', which was straight horror. Director James Whale purposefully wanted to give the sequel a different tone to stand on it's own.

''Bride of Frankenstein'' is the 1935 sequel to the 1931 film ''Film/{{Frankenstein|1931}}''. It was directed by James Whale. It is widely considered to be the best of the old UniversalHorror movies. Creator/BorisKarloff and Colin Clive reprise their roles as the monster and Dr. Henry Frankenstein, respectively, while Ernest Thesiger joins the proceedings as as Dr. Septimus Pretorius and Elsa Lanchester plays the eponymous Bride.

* CampGay: Dr. Pretorius, although with TheHaysCode in effect by this point it's naturally [[AmbiguouslyGay not stated outright]]. James Whale reportedly told Ernest Thesiger to play him "like an over the top caricature of a bitchy and aging homosexual."
