Once a powerful Hollywood director best known for ``Frankenstein'' and ``The Bride of Frankenstein,'' James Whale is long since retired and in increasingly poor health. His stalwart housekeeper, Hanna, quietly disapproves of Whale's faceless, nameless parade of young gay lovers, but when the director takes an interest in new gardener Clayton Boone, a former Marine and Korean War veteran, it seems to be for something more than his usual casual conquest.
