the eyes of elsa
Elsa Lanchester may be best remembered for the iconic look she brought to "Bride of Frankenstein", though that is hardly the only thing she did. A British born actress, she started in dance in Paris learning under Isadora Duncan (whom she reportedly despised), before teaching Isadora's method. She married actor Charles Laughton in 1929, during her time in cabaret and stage work. Eventually moving to the states, she got her break with Frankenstein, going on to more film work, stage work, music and television. A woman as fascinating as she was beautiful!
