Dracula and Frankenstein's Monster are horror cinema icons, and the actors most deeply associated with the two roles also shared a unique friendship. Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff starred in dozens of black-and-white horror films and over the years managed to collaborate on and co-star in eight movies.
Through dozens of interviews and extensive archival research, this greatly expanded new edition examines the Golden Age of Hollywood, the era in which both stars worked, recreates the shooting of Lugosi's and Karloff's mutual films, examines their odd and moving personal relationship, and analyzes their ongoing legacies.
Features include a fully detailed filmography of the eight Karloff and Lugosi films, full summaries of both men's careers, and more than 250 photographs, some in color.
