For those of you who remember staying up late at night as a kid to catch an old horror movie, this collection is a gem.
Having seen the original Frankenstein on sale at a well known retail outlet for over $35.00, the oportunity to own five of these movies for much less was too good to pass up.
These movies are, as far as I can tell, the original uncut versions. They are actually more disturbing than I recall, probably due to the lack of commercials that gave me time to catch my breath as a kid. Karloff was a master at portraying the monster's frustration with mankind, and Universal Pictures knew exactly how to arrange sets and lighting to ensure that you checked over your shoulder, from time to time.
Glenn Strange is perhaps less of a master of the monster in "House of Frankenstein", but Karloff as Dr.Nieman brings the creepyness back into this film.
I agree with one reviewer that said you should purchase now, before Universal finds out that they have made a mistake in releasing these movies. I would have probably paid $35.00 for the one movie.....

This is my second retro-review in as many days.This time it is the companion set to the Mummy franchise,Universals'Legacy Collection of the original "Frankenstein" franchise.I have decided from time to time to go back into my collection and pick out titles that I have never touched and do a retro-review on them like this one.
This set is one of my more prized ones.Five movies are here starting with the absolute horror classic that spawned and inspired countless such films that came after it,the original 1931 "Frankenstein" starring the inimitable Boris Karloff.Karloff had been in the business for some years as a minor player in silent and early sound films.But it was this role that was to change his career and life forever and make him a household name almost overnight.I recall my mothers' recollections of this film on seeing it on its' debut run as a young girl.She always remembered the scene with the little girl being thrown into the water and that the entire picture scared the begeesus out of her.It still has the ability to scare and terrify even today.
Everybody is familiar with the plots of at least the first two films,"Frankenstein" and "The Bride of Frankenstein"(1935).They involve the doings of one Dr.Frankenstein(the monster had no name and was never called Frankenstein) who becomes obsessed with reanimating dead tissue.This leads him,with his assistant Ygor,to try his theories on human bodies;the fresher the better.When finally the good doctor brings to life his experiment the monster he has created becomes hard to handle.It is basically trying to get a grasp on his unusual situation but is being pulled in many directions at once.He escapes and has a few encounters with outsiders but his actions are totally misconstrued.

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).

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.
