film. It is today also recognized as the film that established the first "shared universe" by establishing that the four preceding ''Frankenstein'' films, along with ''The Wolf Man'' existed in the same universe. Later Universal films would also add the three Dracula films and a version of The Invisible Man to this shared universe.

* FakeShemp: A completely different actor plays the Monster at the start of the film when he is thawed out of the ice, and they barely bother covering the fact up.
