    Elsa Lanchester, Bride of Frankenstein
    "She's alive! Alive!" And for decades of horror fans, we can add, "She's hot! Hot!" Yes, my friends, that little white-streaked beehive dish has been an icon of horror and marriage (same thing?) since 1935. Look at her. And if you doubt her humanity, keep in mind that just minutes after she reanimates she dumps the monster for the doctor. The more things change the more they stay the same.

    Hazel Court, Premature Burial
    This one's a stretch. Consider her the dark horse. Emily Gault (old-school scream queen Hazel Court) is a gold digger out to land herself a trophy husband. Unfortunately, that man is whacked-out Guy Carrell (Ray Milland), who's convinced that he will someday be buried alive. As you know, No. 16 always has a slim chance against No. 1. So let's acknowledge that the lavender dresses on Gault's bridesmaids are simply delicious.
