The original Frankenstein is one of the silver screen's most unforgettable characters and, along with the other Universal Classic Monsters, defined the Hollywood horror genre. Frankenstein: Complete Legacy Collection includes all 8 films from the original legacy including the tragic classic starring Boris Karloff and the timeless films that followed. These landmark motion pictures defined the iconic look of Henry Frankenstein’s Monster and his Bride, and continue to inspire countless remakes and adaptations that strengthen the legend of Frankenstein to this day.

The previous "FRANKENSTEIN" collection looked great----------on the outside.
The previous "FRANKENSTEIN" collection completely sucked--on the inside.
Believe it or not, the previous release had the 1931-1948 "FRANKENSTEIN"
movies on ONLY two DVDs; one of which was double-sided [ugh!].
Now, the SINGLE-SIDED discs contain:
Disc #1 = a.) FRANKENSTEIN.
Disc #2 = b.) THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN ; c.) SON OF FRANKENSTEIN.
Disc #3 = d.) GHOST OF FRANKENSTIN ; e.) FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN; f.) HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN.
Disc #4 = g.) HOUSE OF DRACULA ; h.) BUD ABBOTT AND LOU COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN.
Scattered throughout are these bonus features:
*"The Frankenstein Files: How Hollywood Made a Monster" ; *"She's Alive! Creating The Bride of Frankenstein" ; *"Karloff: The Gentle Monster" ; *"Frankenstein Archives" ; *"The Bride of Frankenstein Archives" ; *"Boo! [a short film]" ; *"Abbott and Costello Meet the Monsters" ; *Commentaries on four (4) features ; *Production Photographs ; * Theatrical Trailers.
THE Monster is played by:
1931- 1939: a.) ; b.) & c.), is Boris Karlof.
1942: d.) is Lon Chaney, Junior [with Bela Lugosi's voice].
1943: e.) is Bela Lugosi [his dialogue was deleted].
1944-1948: f.) ; g.) ; h.), is Glenn Strange.
I had all the previous releases, except Gillman and Phantom. I'm replacing my WOLF MAN ;
and MUMMY collections... eventually.
Bottom line: this is a very affordable set and something that Universal really (REALLY!) got right. For the price, the complaints about certain films being repeated between the sets is moot. This way, at least you can watch the series through in order without having to search for another set. Well, technically you need to watch THE WOLFMAN and GHOST before MEETS WOLFMAN!
I recently purchased a Blu-Ray version of Son of Frankenstein from France. It looked about as good as the DVD version - washed out with low contrast. However, this release has the contrast fixed. Also gone is the content brightness changes and the jumpiness of the picture. Universal took lots of time in effort in to the restoration of this film.
Just like Son, the other films in this collection have been masterfully restored to pristine standards. I compared Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man in the French Blu-Ray release to this one. There is no comparison. This release is top notch. The French release had white dots throughout the frames in the beginning and even a splice in the titles. This release is sharp and clear - free of artifacts and changes in lighting.
This is the ultimate Frankenstein collection. If you have this in DVD, I highly recommend upgrading to this Blu-Ray edition. You will be thrilled with the quality. Even though there aren't any extras on the Son/Ghost or the triple movie disc except for unmastered theatrical trailers, the value of such high-quality films outweighs the lack of extras.
If you're a fan of these classic film, this is a must-buy collection!
