5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time! June 1 2004
Format:DVD
This collection has been long overdue! Savor it! Relish it! The ultimate Universal collection in all of its digitally remastered glory will NOT disapppoint the true fans of the genre nor any low key fan either. Frankenstein collection includes the 1931 RESTORED version("Now I know what it feels like to BE GOD!"), the superior 1935 sequel BRIDE (Elsa Lanchester's bust line has never looked better!), solid sequel SON, 1942's Ghost, and the very good HOUSE OF(1944).
Bride of Frankenstein will always be my fave from Universal's vault of horror and the commentary is highly engaging. Watch it without and then with. Maybe someday Universal will release the fully restored 90 minute version of Bride that includes the Dwight Frye murder subplot involving Auntie and Uncle Glutz, the Goldstadt Morgue inquest scene, the monster's assault on E.E. Clive's(Was he Colin's brother?) burgomeister, Dr. Pretorious's OTHER little person in jar scene(part of which can still be glimpsed in this version), and the extended prologue with even more of busty Lanchester.
The films, themselves, look extraordinary on DVD. They are crisp, clear and sound magnificent. One interesting feature with regard to 'Frankenstein' and 'Bride Of' is the special features involving still photos with background music. Noteworthy:Bride of Frankenstein was one of the first films to have a fully orchestrated score just for the film. There is even a gem of commentary in which we learn that a rumour circulated of Franz Waxman suing Rodgers and Hammerstein(Listen to Bali Hi from South Pacific and tell me that it does not evoke the 3-note creation sequence from Bride!). Theatrical trailers are a riot, but why was Valerie Hobson the only actor in which Universal superimposed a title card over her preview scene? My only complaint is that Universal should have included Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein(read my review of this one).

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the three Legacy Collection box sets May 30 2004
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Just as Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein are the most complex and impressive of all the classic Universal monster movies, Frankenstein The Legacy Collection is the most impressive of the three Legacy Collection DVD sets. Not only do you get five classic Frankenstein's monster films, you also are treated to more numerous and significant extra features here than in the Dracula and Wolf Man Legacy Collection releases.
It is difficult to compare and contrast the different Universal monsters; my personal predilection draws me to Dracula, but I daresay Frankenstein's monster is the most successful, memorable, and influential of the Dracula - Frankenstein's monster -Wolf Man triad. The first two Frankenstein films are nothing short of brilliant (although I still regret that they did not truly recreate the monster of Mary Shelley's imaginative vision), with the sequel, Bride of Frankenstein, actually going one better than the original. When you think of Universal's Dracula, you think of Bela Lugosi; when you think of The Wolf Man, you think of Lon Chaney, Jr. When you think of Frankenstein, however, you think of Boris Karloff as the monster, Colin Clive as Dr. Frankenstein, Elsa Lanchester as the Bride of Frankenstein, James Whale as the ingenious director, Jack Pierce as the legendary horror make-up artist, etc. Virtually every last detail of the first two Frankenstein films is perfect, unforgettable, and remarkably complex - the vision, the style of presentation, the iconic performances, the make-up, the special effects, everything. Not even Dracula is as memorable in half as many ways as both Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein are.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Frankenstein Legacy May 25 2004
By LifeMi
Format:DVD
In celebration of VAN HELSING, Universal has pulled out the classic monster movies and given them the royal treatment that has been long overdue to them. This is the FRANKENSTEIN box set, containing five of the films telling the horrific, tragic tale of the Frankenstein Monster.
1. FRANKENSTEIN (1931)
Under the protection of darkness, Dr. Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive) and his hunchback assistant Fritz (Dwight Frye) steal bodies and organs to build the doctor's dream; a man-made being. On a stormy night, with Dr. Frankenstein's mentor, Dr. Waldman (Edward Van Sloan), Victor Moritz (John Boles), and his fiancee Elizabeth (Mae Clarke) watching him, Frankenstein brings his creation to life. Unknowingly, the brain Frankenstein used was a criminal's brain. Now, the doctor must do what he can to stop the Monster (Boris Karloff)
A pure classic, none the less. The atmosphere is appropriately gothic, the makeup is ingenious, the script is almost flawless, and the direction is very unique (4 closeups in a row, followed by an establishing shot). Performance wise, Clive defines the accursed doctor, Boles does what he can in his thankless role, Clarke is breathtaking as Elizabeth, Frye sets the standard for crazed assistants, Van Sloan is in strong form, and of course, Boris Karloff is in his star-winning performance as the monster.
JUDGEMENT: 10/10
2. THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935)
Though apparently killed by the burning windmill, the monster (Boris Karloff) survives, as does the good doctor (Colin Clive). Unfortunately, Dr. Pretorious (Ernest Thesiger) coerces Henry back into the realm of gods and monsters, suggesting they give the monster, who has learned how to talk, what he wants; a bride (Elsa Lancaster)
James Whale has done the unthinkable.
