32 Days of Halloween, Day 31: The Rest of the Best

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein

Well, there were some things that I couldn’t find online which I would have loved to share with you. One obvious bit is the original Invisible Man, starring Claude Rains and directed by James Whale. It’s not posted, though. I can’t even find the trailer. Best I could do is this terrible quality trailer for the sequel, The Invisible Man Returns, starring Vincent Price as a friend of the brother of the original Invisible Man. Long story.

Update: Alas, no good version of the trailer exists online at present. If that changes, please someone let me know.

Anyway, you can find the full film on the most excellent Legacy Collection of The Invisible Man.

Direct link for the feedreaders.

And while we had Frankenstein before, there’s always the sequel, which spawned the most famous hairdo in cinematic history: that of Elsa Lanchester as the Bride of Frankenstein

That full film is on the Frankenstein Legacy Collection. And just so you know, I push the Legacy Collections a lot because they’re good.

And I couldn’t find a complete version of The Wolf Man either, unfortunately. But what I did find instead is the trailer for Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, which is ridiculously funny. And, as the trailer proclaims, they did get Bela Lugosi to come back as Dracula and Lon Chaney Jr. to come back as The Wolf Man. If you haven’t seen it, you really should.
