He immortalized Henry Frankenstein in Hollywood’s Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, but his too-brief life was often a horror saga as well.

“One Man Crazy!” The Life and Death of Colin Clive is the first full biography of this brilliant, hypersensitive actor.

Adventurously-researched, sympathetic yet unsparingly revealing, and featuring over 200 illustrations, this book illuminates Clive’s genius – and the private demons that agonized the man who, as Monster-Making scientist Frankenstein, unforgettably cried, “It’s alive!”

Gregory William Mank is the author of such books as It’s Alive! The Classic Cinema Saga of Frankenstein; Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff: The Expanded Story of a Haunting Collaboration; Hollywood’s Maddest Doctors; and Laird Cregar: A Hollywood Tragedy.
