Peter Boyle and Anne Beesley in a scene from Young Frankenstein (1974). Notice the blue/green tint of Boyle’s monster makeup and the red in Beesley’s dress? Those colors pop and transform into distinctive grays when filmed in black-and-white movies.
Creature: Because I am lonely! Every creature has a mate. Every bird in the sky! Even you are to be married! Why am I denied the comforts you allow yourself? A moment ago you were amazed at my intellect, but now you harden your heart. Please, do not be inconsistent, I find it infuriating! All I ask is the possibility of love.
Victor: You think it is a possibility?
Victor: How does it feel, to be in love?
Creature: It feel like all the life is bubbling up in me and spilling from my mouth, it feels like my lungs are on fire and my heart is a hammer, it feels like I can do anything in the world! Anything in the world!
Victor: Is that how it feels?
Victor (very weakly): I don’t know what love is.
Creature: I will teach you!
Victor: Yes. You understand it better than I. Do you have a soul, and I none?
Creature (elated): I don’t know! Let’s debate!
Victor: Every chance I had of love, I threw away. Every shred of human warmth, I cut to pieces. Hatred is what I understand. Nothingness. Despair. I am finished. – But you give me purpose. You, I desire. Go on. Walk on. You must be destroyed.
The Creature and love.
from Nick Dear - Frankenstein, based on the Novel by Mary Shelley
