I Like Boris Karloff's Performance As Frankenstein's Monster.

Good, revolutionary horror film, but could have been great if it was a little longer and had a musical score.

I don’t think it’s fair to say that about the lack of score. Sound was just being introduced and soundtracks to films were unheard of back then. I feel that’s like saying “this silent film would have been better if it had sound”. And about the length, it seemed well paced and as long as it should have been. I can’t think how they would have made it longer. Plus that was the average length for movies back then I believe.
