Intriguing for those who enjoy (& sometimes copy) the iconic “Bride of Frankestein” look ~ Elsa’s wig was actually on an auburn hair base, not black.
With black & white films, people often forget all of the colours that were actually in use on set, since pure black & white read so harshly on film.  I remember carefully studying the Dracula Bride outfits from the 1931 film way back when I was creating my first Dracula’s Bride Gown, and realized that the originals were quite likely made in pastels to give that pale, but subtle depth.
I rather adore that the original wig is red w/streaks ~ make it a little more burgundy, and it would have been the way I dyed my own hair with silver streaks back in 12th grade.
