#97 FRANKENSTEIN (1933)
THE MONSTER DROWNS A LITTLE GIRL

Long before Lenny was accidentally killing puppies in "Of Mice And Men", Frankenstein's Monster had difficulty with beautiful fragile things.  In this scene from the 1931 classic, The Monster plays with the innocent Maria, holding flowers and throwing them into the water together.  It's a touching, tranquil, and sweet scene, until he runs out of flowers, and he tosses her into the lake where she drowns.  Boris Karloff himself fought to get the scene cut from the film, as he felt it was too disturbing, and it was missing from all prints and TV broadcasts after 1937, and was not restored until 48 years later in a special videotape!
