Frankenstein 1931 and Dracula 1931 are excellent resources on the plots, casts and the making of these two iconic film classics.

This book is simply spectacular. It would be impossible for a "Frankenstein" fan to not be blown away by it.

    Being a lifelong Wolf Man fan, this book was a delight from start to finish. It covers every aspect of the film, from its inception, to casting, and filming. The biography’s of the main cast was informative, and shed a little more light on this classic film. I cannot recommend it enough to any die-hard Universal Monster fan out there. There have been a lot of books written about the Wolf Man, but this one has that little bit more. The only thing missing for me from this, was photos from the “lost” bear scene. But we can’t have everything in life…right?

    The Classic Movie Monsters Collection such a great collection, I must have everyone that you do in the future.
    I LOVE the way that some of the covers have areas of gloss printing against matt card. That looks so classy.
    Also the thick card covers are very impressive.
    The contents are always so well researched and illustrated.
    Excellent publications.
