The Phantom Monster Show (1949-Reissue)

After Universal Pictures stopped making B movies and focused its efforts on releasing more prestigious feature films, Realart Pictures acquired the Universal sound film library in 1948. It re-released many of its popular B films as double features.  The Phantom Monster Show was one of the first double bills to be re-released. Many of these re-released classics outperformed brand-new first-run films at the box office. The Phantom Monster Show includes two of Boris Karloff's (1887–1969) best Frankenstein films: Son Of Frankenstein and The Bride Of Frankenstein, starring Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi (1882–1956), Colin Clive (1900–1937), and Elsa Lanchester (1902–1986).
