For this year's festive jollity to mark Halloween, I watched the 1930 film Frankenstein, played by Boris Karloff atEnfield's Dugdale Centre. It was showing as part of a double bill with The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) on afterwards, but in fact I only stayed to watch the first film. I find it hard to sit still for any length of time as it is, and so this decision had nothing to do wth the film, or the set up, or the staff etc - more that I decided to quit while I was ahead and had thoroughly enjoyed the first (and original) film. I felt really happy to be able to walk there (dressed in full Halloween garb) and to be able to do something cheap (£4.00 for both films!), and support my local town centre (which has seen some pretty horrific stuff during the riots this August). And obviously to enjoy a real classic, which I have never actually seen before. Finally to find out that Boris himself (born William Henry Pratt) was brought up in Enfield!
