Flashy 5 DVD set of 13 Bela Lugosi and 4 Boris Karloff publi
Rudolf Schmid | Kensington, CA | 11/20/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD set is part of Brentwood/BCI's "Legends of Hollywood" series nicely presented in white cases bearing Al Hirschfeld artwork. The 5 double-sided DVDs contain 17 public-domain films, 13 for Bela Lugosi (1882-1956), 4 for Boris Karloff (1887-1969). The 14 B&W and 3 color public-domain films vary greatly in quality from mostly poor or fair to occasionally fairly decent (e.g., The human monster). Watching these films evokes childhood memories of viewing iffy technical-quality movies on TV during the 1950s and 1960s. The 17 films are (4:3, DD2.0/5.1, TT17:20):
