Sinossi

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 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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Two Horror Masters 1 ottobre 2014
Di David E. Goldweber - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Not a cheap book, not a short book, but an amazing read.

There's something special in the writing - the way Mank spices up the main narrative - sometimes fast-forwarding, sometimes rewinding, weaving little quotes and anecdotes into the whole, yet always keeping the larger narrative (comparing and contrasting these two horror masters' careers) in sight.

Mank's style is sometimes ironic, but he's never snide and condescending; he loves these films, he loves these people, and he tries to give everyone their due. He honestly conveys the unhappy events, especially in regards to Lugosi, whose final years were by any measures pathetic. The book takes time to finish, and you need to read closely, but you feel immersed in the story, transported back to the 30s and 40s. I felt I could actually hear the voices of the people Mank interviewed.

Among the best chapters is "The Rivalry" (chap 17) where Mank speculates about why these two greats never became friends; he considers their differences but also notes surprising common ground between the two. Another fun idea is "Mr Potato Head Features" (chap 28) which makes fun of Lon Chaney Jr (in a genial way). The final chapter (chap 42) tries to assess the positions of hardcore Lugosi fans v. hardcore Karloff fans by giving time to each side.

It's almost impossible to imagine a more complete and more fair assessment and comparison. You come away from this book with greater love for both Karloff and Lugosi, and with great gratitude toward the author.

5.0 su 5 stelle Kudos to Gregory William Mank! 7 ottobre 2009
Di Jean Valjean - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I have read other books by Gregory William Mank. He has never failed to please. I have his book of Karloff and Lugosi: The Story of a Haunting Collaboration which was published in 1990. It was a well written review of the films of Karloff and Lugosi. This recently published Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff: The EXPANDED Story of a Haunting Collaboration is an excellent upgrade of his first book.

Let us now look at the data on those two books:

Karloff and Lugosi: The Story of a Haunting Collaboration (1990)
9.2 X 6.2 X 1.2 inches
384 pages

Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff: The Expanded Story of a Haunting Collaboration (2009)
10.3 X 7.2 X 1.7 inches
701 pages

As you can see, this expanded book is precisely what its title says...it is indeed E X P A N D E D. It now provides for much updated information on the films of Karloff and Lugosi with fascinating background information on the two actors. The book has many wonderful photos of their films and behind the scene involvements. It is superbly written. I noticed that Greg Mank's opinion of the work of Bela Lugosi has raised since the publication of his original book in 1990. This parallels Bela's rising star during the past twenty years among fans of those golden age Universal horror films. Today, we can safely say that both Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi are basically equal insofar as their cinematic importance, ability, and impact goes.

Kudos to Gregory William Mank for producing this excellent and very readable book about Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi and the eight films they worked together in!
5.0 su 5 stelle History made Human: a Great Book! 12 gennaio 2016
Di Gregory A. Douglass - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I read the first edition of the Karloff/Lugosi tale after getting it out of the library. I brought it on a romantic weekend with my fiancee (now my wife) back in 1995. You're still on my wife's "poop list" , Mr. Mank; I spent much of the time reading the book. Absolutely riveting. The expanded edition is even better; I've re-read it at least three times. Mank is the cinema history equivalent of David McCullough, a consistently entertaining writer who writes impeccably researched page turners. I've got three of his books and look forward to purchasing more. If you're a Monster Kid of any age, this is a must-have.

5.0 su 5 stelle Insightful and well illustrated 4 dicembre 2010
Di Buzz Pliskin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
A superbly illustrated book containing many rare photographs focusing on the infamous rivalry between two of universals major players of the 1930s, the birth of the Horror genre and the people who made it happen. A bittersweet tale of how bad decisions and serendipity lead to the ascension of Boris Karloff as a top billing moviestar and relegated Bela Lugosi to the 2nd tier of moviedom, (Something of a iniquity in my opinion when you watch Lugosi's performances in The Black Cat and Rue Morgue for instance).

The writing style is light and informal which makes for a very easy and enjoyable read. Chapters cover specific topics meaning you can dip in and out as you please. The focus lies on the films of the two stars so Karloff and Lugosi's lives are dealt with in broader strokes but this does not detract from the validity of the book, this is the book to have on either stars film career. Buy it and enjoy the stories surrounding their major triumphs and failures, the films they made together and the names associated with them from James Whale, Tod Browning to Carl Laemmle Jr and Snr. An essential addition to any Horror fan's library but I would suggest separate books on each star for those searching for biographies of their personal lives.

An excellent and detailed look at the cross lives of Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. The author mentions the United States Postal Setvice's issuance of 32 cent stamps commentating Bela as Dracula, Boris as both Imhotep and the Frankenstein monster. Along with Lon Chaney as The Phantom of the Opera and Lon Chaney, Jr as the Wolfman. I remember it well as I was the Supervisor of the Universal City P.O. in charge of issuing those stamps.
