A script and electric eel from the production of Kenneth Branagh’s 1994 literary adaptation, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
Dr Frankenstein (Branagh) used electric eels to spark his monstrous creation into life. It is made of rubber and hand painted to look realistic. It features two metal rods protruding from the top – one cut shorter than the other - where it could be controlled and moved through the water.
The script is 113 pages long and bound together with a metal fastener. It is dated ‘8th July 1993’ and remains unannotated or highlighted, although something has been removed with white correcting liquid on the title page.
The script has some wear from production use and age, including creasing, rust around the metal fastening and coffee stains on the cover page. The eel has some discolouration and scuffing, but overall both pieces remain in a good, production-used condition.
Materials: Paper, Ferrous Metals, Rubber.
