Frankenstein (1931)

If you haven't seen it...
The Universal Studios Frankenstein 1931 movie is the single most important horror film ever made, and it still looks great today. It is a short film full of excitement, drama, iconic images and interesting ideas. Highly recommended.

The more recent Branagh/De Niro version may be more faithful to the novel (which is also excellent by the way) but when you think of Frankenstein it is Boris Karloff's face you see.
