Counselor at Law/Frankenstein connection

Recommended Posts

I just finished watching John Barrymore in Counselor at Law. The opening and closing music score was the same as the closing music for Frankenstein. I guess Universal used this music over and over. Very interesting. I was expecting the Monster to pop out somewhere.

All the studios from the 30s to at least the 60s used this practice of using stock music when they didn't want to bother with a original score.

 

Incidentally, the music from Frankenstein in Counsellor at Law was itself stock music used in Frankenstein, composed by Giuseppe Becce. He is the composer of the score used for Frankenstein, all of which, was stock music. Frankenstein has no original score.
