'Such disposition to commerce at

the hour of twelve o'clock of my

one hundredth birthday. If all

the conditions heretofore set forth

have been met, now then -- hear once

more, and for the last time...the

authenticity of my own voice!'

Cornelius Waldman nos to a Clerk, HERR FALKSTEIN, who

is standing nearby.

Herr Falkstein places the needle of an old victrola onto

an already spinning record. It SCRATCHES and then begins

to PLAY.

VOICE OF BEAUFORT FRANKENSTEIN

(o.s.)

How do you do this thing? Where?

In here? Just talk right into it?

All right. Am I close enough? All

right, all right -- get the hell

out of the way.

(he clears his throat,

then speaks in a deep,

majestic voice)

The once proud name of Frankenstein

has been dragged, by my only son,

Victor, into an abyss of shame.

There was a time when the name

'Frankenstein' conjured dreams of

virtue, of honor and devotion. Now,

no guilt, no malignity, no misery

can be found to equal mine. And

the catalogue of sins of my once

devoted son will not cease to

rankle in my wounds until death

shall close them forever -- so

supremely frightful is the effect

of any human endeavor to mock the

stupendous mechanism of the Creator

of the world.

Did you get all that? Are you sure

you got 'rankle in my wounds'? I'll

kill you if you screw this up. All

right, all right. Now as to the

disposition of my estate.

Everyone in the room sits alert.

VOICE OF BEAUFORT FRANKENSTEIN

(o.s)

To my cousins, Henrich and Agatha...

VOICE OF BEAUFORT FRANKENSTEIN

(o.s.)

...and to my cousin Walter and his

wife Ilse...
