Quotes from

Dr. Frank Mannering: I can't do it! I can't destroy Frankenstein's creation. I've got to see it at its full power.


Dr. Frank Mannering: Mr Talbot, if you want us to help you, you must do as we say. Now, please lie down.
Lawrence Talbot: You think I'm insane. You think I don't know what I'm talking about. Well you just look in that grave where Lawrence Talbot is supposed to be buried and see if you find a body in it!


Lawrence Talbot: Why have you followed me?
Dr. Frank Mannering: Talbot, you're a murderer.
Lawrence Talbot: Prove it.
Dr. Frank Mannering: You're insane at times and you know it. You're sane enough now though to know what you're doing. Why don't you let me take care of you?
Lawrence Talbot: You think it would do any good to put me in a lunatic asylum?
Dr. Frank Mannering: You know that's where you belong. It's the only thing to do.
Lawrence Talbot: Oh that wouldn't do any good. I'd only escape again sooner or later.
Dr. Frank Mannering: We might be able to cure you. It might prevent you...
Lawrence Talbot: I only want to die. That's why I'm here. If I ever find peace I'll find it here.

Facts about

The dog (Bruno) in the film is a German Shepherd named Moose, who Lon adapted from the Universal Lot just after Moose's earlier appearance as the 4 legged werewolf that attacks Lawrence in The Wolf Man.
Evelyn Ankers who played Elsa Frankenstein in The Ghost of Frankenstein does not reprise her role in this film. It was decided that Lawrence shouldn't have two love interests played by the same actress so Ilona Massey was cast. This is not the first time in a Frankenstein film that the female lead was re-cast from an earlier film. Mae Clarke played Elizabeth in Frankenstein while Valerie Hobson took over the role for Bride of Frankenstein
The very first time we see the Frankenstein Monster, it is not Bela Lugosi in the makeup. Stuntman Eddie Parker also made appearances as the Monster - most noticeably during the final battle with the Wolfman.
