James Whale's work in Hollywood is largely swept under the carpet by Universal. Except of course for his "Frankenstein" movie.
"The Road Home" and "Remember last Night" are both (along with some other of his films) excellent entertainment and were butchered by Universal back the. I have written to scholars and Entertainment Moguls such as Robert Osborne and the Head of Universal Studios to release a restored Box Set of his work.
I sincerely hope that Universal Studios will follows in the footsteps of Warner Brothers who recently have been releasing some of their classic movies as Box Set (such as the W. Powell / Myrna Loy Collection) - or as MOD (Manufactured on Demand). Warner has great success with this franchise and I hope that Universal will wake up as well and follow that example. The most recent releases of "UNIVERSAL VAULT" titles are tired, too few and not worth mentioning.
