Re: FRANKENSTEIN AND BRIDE THEATRICAL SHOWING  (reply)
Loved every minute of this experience. Without going into too much detail, I took in both movies before I had to go to work last night, which was convenient, because the theater that they showed the double-feature at was no more than a...

Re: The Raven, Bela Lugosi's greatest performance as a mad scientist  (reply)
I'm interested to know, Rick, being an actor yourself, what kind of acting ability overall, would you consider Bela Lugosi to have ultimately had? Was he a "great" actor, a "good" one, a "so bad, he's good" kind of actor, or an actor who...

Re: DRACULA: Lost" Lugosi Vesta Voyage Images (reply)
Didn't they flesh this scene out better in the Spanish version? Atleast in the Melford-directed Dracula, they followed the script, which in the end, had it's own pluses and minuses. Can you imagine how much longer, and more tedious...

Heal Lionel Atwill, hurt John Carradine...can I do that? I apologize, I'm not sure I understand the rules of the game. I just figured I'd give it a shot. I can vote for Bela or Boris any day of the week, so I might as well use this...

Re: London After Midnight (reply)
London After Midnight.........would LOVE to see it, but it ain't gonna happen. And I've made peace with that. The legend that remains of this lost film is enough for me, because it keeps the mystery alive, perhaps better than the actual...

Agreed on CALIGARI. That film is undeniable. I just watched it about a month ago, and still found it utterly dreamy!!!

Re: Boris Karloff's 10 Greatest Horror Roles  (reply)
As far as "KARLOFF THE UNCANNY" is concerned (seriously, that has to be the BEST star billing in the HISTORY of the movies!), nothing beats the monster in all three Frankenstein films, though particularly the ones he did for James Whale....

I think my number one silent will always be Nosferatu. This is the film I ALWAYS counter with, whenever someone tells me The Shining, The Exorcist or any of today's horror flicks is their favorite. No disrespect, but I was brought up...

Re: Son of Dracula (reply)
Agreed, telegonus. He's kind of like a "road-company" Dracula of something, but a pretty snappy one lol! In all seriousness though, I've always felt he was oddly effective in Son of Dracula. There was a little bit of the "corn-fed,...

I just have to say that the Channel Four/Photoplay restoration of Lon Chaney's (don't kid yourself, Rupert Julien!) The Phantom of the Opera (1925) is something that I've been diggin' on quite a bit this October. And I haven't even...

Re: Son of Dracula (reply)
I LOVE Son of Dracula. It is perhaps the easiest of all Universal Horrors to watch, because the script and direction are so precise and crisp (well, perhaps not THE easiest, but I digress). The whole thing feels fresh and unstilted,...

Re: The Raven, Bela Lugosi's greatest performance as a mad scientist  (reply)
I prefer to look at The Raven as a "Bela Lugosi vehicle" much like the kinds of pictures that were specifically developed for other movie stars of the time. James Cagney, for example, had a certain "type" of movie role that he excelled...

Re: DRACULA on Blu-Ray (1931) (reply)
Well, the first DVD that I had EVER bought was Universal's first disc of this particular film, and it was this, one of my all-time favorite films that clinched it for me. I had previously commented to a friend "I have too many damn vhs...

Son of Frankensetin ia perhaps my personal favorite of all Frankenstein films. And that is most certainly not to say anything negative against James Whale's original artistic achievements. To my mind, Frankenstein is the consummate...
