Gregory W. Mank, Kim Newman, Joe Dante and Richard Gordon are just some of the familiar faces on display in this very good documentary taking a look at Boris Karloff. The majority of the 38 minute running time is devoted to his Frankenstein monster performances with FRANKENSTEIN, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN and SON OF FRANKENSTEIN. His rivalry with Bela Lugosi is discussed as well as his success on Broadway, TARGETS and THE BODY SNATCHER. If you're not overly familiar with Karloff then this is a very good documentary that will introduce you to some of his best movies. Fans of the legendary actor probably won't learn anything new here but the interviews are still a lot of fun. It's also worth noting that the majority of the time is devoted to his horror movies so it would be nice for a longer documentary that covered all aspects of his career.
