A great visual archive of rare footage
26 July 2001 | by jimben2000See all my reviews

An innocuous looking video with a treasure trove of rare footage and vintage trailers, offering a rich and unusual look at the history of Frankenstein on the screen. For the serious collector there are two visual treasures early on: the first is an extremely rare makeup still of Bela Lugosi in a test for the 1931 version, and this is followed by a still of an rejected Karloff makeup. Also included are some rare color footage from "Son of Frankenstein."
