“She’s Alive!!!” James Whale’s 1935 science-fiction horror masterpiece — starring Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester — comes to life with Franz Waxman’s fantastic symphonic score. “Some movies age; others ripen. Seen today, Whale’s masterpiece is more surprising than when it was made because today’s audiences don’t have to deconstruct it to enjoy it; it’s satirical, exciting, funny, and an influential masterpiece of art direction.” Roger Ebert
