Today's clips:

  • Karl Freund: The Mummy

  • James Whale: The Bride of Frankenstein

  • Edgar G. Ulmer: Black Cat

  • -- Karloff and Lugosi. Playing chess. Plus Lugosi skinning half-naked Karloff. Mmm, hot.
  • Archie Mayo: Svengali

  • Rouben Mamoulian: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

  • Merlan C. Cooper/Ernst B. Shoedsack: King Kong

  • Jacques Tourneur: Cat People

  • Don Siegel: Invasion of the Body Snatchers

  • Felix Feist: Donovan's Brain

I wish the subject of horror movies as a mirror for societal attitudes was discussed more. But dude, 50's invasion horror -- not subtle about the Commie Scare.
