Peggy Webling

Forgotten Women of Genre

James Whale's Frankenstein is one of the greatest movies ever made, shaping the horror film genre as we know it, and it owes everything to a woman. Actually, two. We all know and adore Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, author of Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus. But that wasn’t the direct adaptation Whale sought out to make. Whale’s film was an adaptation of the play Frankenstein, an Adventure in the Macabre by Peggy Webling, the first woman to adapt Frankenstein for the stage.
