  1. I cannot seem to get a straight answer as to why Mae Clarke was replaced by Valerie Hobson in “The Bride of Frankenstein”? Please somebody tell me. I actually liked Mae a lot better.

    • The official story was she was in ill-health and couldn’t take on the role. I heard she didn’t want to be associated with horror. I do have to agree with you, Mae has a more distinctive personality than Hobson – though both were typecast in different genres. Thanks for reading!
