Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolf Man are almost universally admired as the original films of the classic horror series. From among these three creatures none was considered more sympathetically, or loved more than Larry Talbot. Let's face it, Lon Chaney was the Wolf Man and I think something about the big lug helped create the character so many of us loved so much.
The Frankenstein monster and the count were both portraid by several actors for Universal with some measure of financial success. Can you recall the Univeral studio ever attempting to have the Talbot Wolf Man portraid by any stand in actor? They wouldn't even consider it.
This DVD was the result of an excellent transfer from a good film original and should be added to every collection of classic horror. The other films featured in this box set are also fine works in the UNIVERSAL tradition. This a good set to purchase and well worth the price.
As for the films themselves, while hokey compared to today's horror films, they have a good deal of style of their own. Chaney doesn't quite come across as the son of the English lord (in fact, he's not a particularly good actor for the dramatic parts compared to some of his co-stars), but his watery eyes and pathetic demeanor show a man who is really haunted by the fact that for a couple days a month he turns into a ferious beast-man.
That said, there is one stinker in the set, the "She-Wolf of London". Starring a very young June Lockhart, this movie doesn't even have a werewolf in it (preventing me from making the obvious, "She also played Lassie" joke). About the only good thing about "She-Wolf" is it's short, barely over an hour. Otherwise, it's predictable (I figured out who did it and how before I was told), overly melodramatic, and not particularly scary even by the standards of the other films.
As for the rest, "Werewolf of London" was actually very good, complete with a couple comic relief old ladies with drinking habits that were actually somewhat funny, and a good plot. "Frankenstien Meets the Wolf-Man" worked well aside from Chaney's delivery of some of his lines, and Bela Lugosi had his only turn as Frankenstien's monster. And the main feature, "The Wolf Man", still packs the punch it's always had.
In my own conclusion to become a halfmanwolf you have to be bitten by a regular 4 legged mystical normal looking wolf..then that person bitten bites other people and turn them into halfmanwolfs...To become a savage underworld wolf you have to bitten by another wolf infected with the virus..The origin of the virus is unknown(Maybe Dr Frankenstein created it when he was playing god and accidentally leaked out....i'm going way ahead of myself here);;lol So all in all my friends i have found another number one film,,in my werewolf catogory..that goes by the name of "The Wolf Man"
I must say that the nay-sayers who gave such poor reviews to these wonderful collections based upon their own individual playback issues caused more than a little concern for me. Perhaps they should try their disks in more than one type of DVD player. Not all DVD players like all disks.
I sincerely recommend these collections for what they are; good quality in both audio and video. Certainly as good or better than when they were shown on TV in the 50's, 60's and 70's.
Perhaps for those un-pleasable few who complain that their quality isn't up to modern standards; take a look at when they were made. There was no such thing as high definition or 5.1 surround sound in the 30's, 40's or 50's. Give it a rest!
"Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman" is the sequel to "Wolf Man" and is pretty good except for the miscasting of the great Bela Lugosi as the Monster. It's odd that Lugosi turned down the role of Frankenstein in the original film and Boris Karloff took the role and became a major star. Yet here is Bela walking stiffly with arms outstretched, grunting his way through the role.
"Werewolf Of London" was the original Universal foray in lycanthropy and the difference between this film and the later ones is quite striking. Seldom seen, this film is well worth watching.
"She-Wolf Of London" is a werewolf picture without a werewolf! And let me tell you, for a suspense film, it's pretty uneventful. Mercifully it only runs for about an hour!
My only complaint with this set is that they took the cheap way out and used a double-sided DVD for one of the disks. Would it have broke the bank to use 3 single-sided DVDs? I don't think so!
But if this doesn't bother you, go ahead and give this set a full 5 Stars, the films themselves certainly merit it.
