Frankenstein Created Woman (1967)
Ironically, one of the most powerful openings of the entire Frankenstein series may be part of the reason that many people dislike the fourth entry. Pitching the emotional content so high at the beginning means it has no choice but to subsequently fall to lesser levels. They’re furnished with a few unusual aspects, though, the most apparent being the court scene. Beneath that there’s commentary on what’s beautiful vs what isn't, even going so far as to make us wonder if any part of death can be equated with beauty.
