What in the life of a Classic Film Fan is more annoying then to be Unable to see a film that only remains in still/photo form?!!?? Lon Chaney looks great and really makes you want to see-view-observe-study this Creepy Looking Film. Directed by the man that later brought us Bela Lugosi in DRACULA, Tod Browning went "bats" for the first time in this Lost gem.
Interesting that this still contains the name Jerry on the tombstone that Curly "Jerome" Howard is holding. Coincidence that he would be the first Stooge to go into that great Vaudeville Stage in the sky.
I was going to post this last year for Halloween. It took so long to restore, It has finally made it here. If the show advertised was half as good as the "Ballyhoo" presented, what a night to remember that would have been!
O.k., I just watched the NEW version of the perennial horror classic. I have to admit, they did a good job! Well paced, great special effects and effective performances. A deluxe dvd edition of the original 1941 great was released with plenty of great extras as well. Including a new documentary on make up man Jack Pierce.Here Lon Chaney Jr. as the Wolf man (which he lovingly refered to as "His baby") attacking the ever lovely (and attackable) Evelyn Ankers.
Producer Samuel Z. Arkoff could only imagine what would happen when he released the Teen Monsters into the Theatres in the 1950s. I WAS A TEENAGE WEREWOLF (Michael Landon) was made for around $75,000.00 and made over 3 million!. Here is the follow up to that film.
Here is the first of many Monster Movie Posters to come! It stood to reason that after the success of ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948), the Bowery Boys would "meet" some Monsters as well. Here is the fully restored one sheet to this 1954 film.
