Complete Universal Horror Films 1920-1960

I want this list to be thorough, so it contains any film from 1920 through 1959 that: A) qualifies as horror, sci-fi, dark thriller, or dark fantasy, or anything else that a fan of late-night horror movies might crave; and B) Was was produced, released by, or owned by Universal Studios in the past or present.

This means it contains some movies that are lost, some movies that Universal no longer owns, and some movies (mostly Paramount) that it did not produce but has since acquired.

It also contains some films whose status as horror (or the other above mentioned genres and sub-genres) is questionable, or even doubtful, all in the name of thoroughness.

I hope to continue to update this list, adding new entries and describing the status of the more obscure ones listed.
