Happy New Ear (and other stolen body parts)

Here's one for the real movie buffs, it's been a hundred years since the first film version of Frankenstein was made.




Previously thought lost, it was rediscovered (in a right old two-and-eight) sometime in the mid 1950s. What a shame it's not in better condition, particularly since this week, the BBC made a big deal of unveiling the fruits of their labour, having put gawd knows how much time, money and resources into restoring the colour to the pilot of "Are You Being Served", FFS. Lazy snatch jokes are more important (or lucrative) than cinematic history, I guess.
