Universal Legacy Edition of “The Wolf Man” Available Now

A. Quinton — Feb. 5th 2010

Whenever one of my favourite bands is about to release a new record, I make a point of listening through their entire discography as a sort of warm-up to the main event. I find savouring the new creation all the more enjoyable while the history of the material is fresh in my mind (yes, fine, I’m a geek, but don’t act like you don’t do it too). In that spirit, you might wish to prepare for the 12th by checking out the Universal Legacy Edition of “The Wolf Man”. Although this is the third time in a decade that Universal has re-released the 1941 classic, it sounds like this might be the edition worth buying. In addition to a new restoration of the film itself, the 2-disc set contains all of the bonus material available on 2004’s Legacy Collection version, plus two new documentaries (one on Lon Chaney Jr., the other on the history of werewolf movies). Not bad for twenty bucks!

Thanks to Macabri for the link.

  • Sweet, I was wondering if it had something the Legacy Collection set didn’t. Sounds like it might be worth the upgrade if I can ever pry some extra cash out of the wallet. But first I still need the darn She-Wolf of London set. Pay cuts suck.

    Looks like I’ll be double dipping. Giving my old set to Hastings and getting cash back for this one.

    Wouldn’t you know… right after I got the 2004 edition too… *sigh* -.-
    Never the less, I do plan on re-watching the original at some point this week before Friday! 8D
