Dracula & The Mummy: Complete Legacy Collections

29 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The 2016 blu ray release of the Frankenstein and Wolf Man Legacy Collections was a moment of celebration for movie and monster lovers everywhere, bringing together all the golden age appearances of Frankenstein’s misbegotten creation and Larry Talbot’s hairy alter-ego. Universal Studios treated those dusty creature features to luminous restorations; from Bride of Frankenstein to She Wolf of London, these essential artifacts never looked less than impeccable and, at times, even ravishing. Colin Clive’s frenzied declaration, “It’s Alive!”, never felt more appropriate.

Now Universal has turned their attention to their other legendary franchise players, Dracula, the sharp-dressed but undead ladies’ man and Im-ho-tep, the cursed Egyptian priest who loved not wisely but too well.

Review: "Cinema's Exiles: From Hitler To Hollywood" (2009); Warner Archive DVD Release

12 April 2017 6:16 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Doug Oswald

Adolf Hitler shaped history in ways we are still coming to grips with to this day. Our understanding and interpretation of the devastation and evil he inflicted upon the world involves not only warfare but his impact on the lives of individuals who would become his victims. Some of his victims would become refugees, most prominently Jewish and political dissidents who would make their way to America and Hollywood. Their story is told in “Cinema’s Exiles: From Hitler to Hollywood” available on DVD by Warner Home Video.

Hitler’s devastation of Europe resulted in an influx of movie talent to America and their impact is extraordinary. The great German cinema brain drain started in the early 1930s and delivered a variety of cinematic exiles, Jews and non-Jews alike, who fled Nazi Germany to Vienna, Paris and London before making their way eventually to Hollywood.
