Baron Frankenstein, with the aid of a young doctor and his fiancée, kidnaps the mentally sick Dr. Brandt in order to perform the first brain transplant operation.
During filming, Peter Cushing and Veronica Carlson gave an on set interview. When the interviewer referred to Cushing making yet another "Hammer" horror film, the actor pretended to burst into tears and this created some laughter.
I have become the victim of everything that Frankenstein and I ever advocated. My brain is in someone else's body.
When Anna drags the water-sodden corpse into the bushes, a crew member's shadow can be seen moving on the brickwork of the curb to the left of the corpse's feet.
For its original cinema release the BBFC requested cuts to remove the rape of Anna by the Baron and to edit shots and sounds of sawing during the brain operation. All later video/DVD releases of the film have been fully uncut.
