Colin Clive and Boris Karloff enjoying a coffee/smoke break on the set of FRANKENSTEIN 1931. Boris looks tired here, no doubt it was a long shoot, and hot under that makeup. Looks like someone’
sandwich is sitting on the table behind them, too.

Here Boris kicks up his heels with a smoke and a spot of tea as Jack Pierce and assistant touch up his makeup between scenes.

And another picture of Clive and Karloff relaxing together over tea. The two seem to enjoy one another’s company quite a bit…

And finally a collection of shots of Boris relaxing between takes with tea. I think so many shots were taken of him taking breaks just because it is such an odd dichotomy seeing such a fantastic monster in such mundane everyday tasks. Pretty neat stuff.
