"Dracula" & "Frankenstein" introduced by Melissa Starker
"Dracula" & "Frankenstein" introduced by Melissa Starker |
This double-bill of two of the most influential films in the studio’s history is introduced by Melissa Starker, a freelance writer who regularly contributes to the Columbus Dispatch and alive.
The phenomenal success of Tod Browning’s Dracula launched Universal’s studio-defining horror cycle and provided Bela Lugosi the role he would be identified with for the rest of his life. (75 mins., 35mm)
Universal had its second horror icon with Boris Karloff’s turn as the monster in Frankenstein. Studio execs worried that audiences would be repulsed by the story of a man created from cadavers, but the film was a hit and made an international star out of Karloff. (70 mins., 35mm)
