The article discusses the author's insights on the implications of the musical score of the motion picture "Bride of Frankenstein," by Max Steiner and Erich Wolfgang Korngold in the U.S. in the 1930s. He believes that the musical score critiques the Nazi Germany at that time. He notes the violation of the musical score to the censorship practices in Hollywood. Further, he states several features depicted by the score from classical composer Gustav Mahler including marches, waltzes, and triads.
