Gods and Monsters by Bill Condon( Visual )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fictionalised biography of film director James Whale who created one of the screen's great mythic heroes in the classic version of 'Frankenstein' and 'Bride of Frankenstein'. Beginning in the 1950s when Whale is largely forgotten or only remembered through camp nostalgia, the film traces his increasing obsession with his gardener, Clayton. As Whale's health deteriorates, his memory increasingly draws him back to the pivotal moments of his life: the rejection of his harsh working-class youth; his service in World War I and loving affair with a fellow soldier; and his years directing in Hollywood. Combining biography and a mature examination of the possible love between homosexual and heterosexual men, 'Gods and Monsters' is also a tribute to the classic Hollywood era
