Frankenstein Frankenstein was not just a hit back in the day, but also ranked 87th on the 100 best movies ever made. Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein has been adapted for other mediums almost constatly ever since. People have been mistakenly calling the unnamed monster "Frankenstein" almost since the beginning.
