Anybody who loves scary movies will love this tribute to horror in film. From Phantom of the Opera in 1925 to the 1950s creature features, Hollywood's Universal Studios delivered fantastic films with timeless icons known worldwide: Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Wolf Man, the Invisible Man, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
This book looks at the performances of the stars who breathed life into the monsters — Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr, Claude Rains, Vincent Price, and others — while also remembering the excellent supporting players and, of course, the geniuses behind the camera who made these films both horrific and beautiful.
A must for classic film lovers.
