    The con is pretty small (relatively speaking), but they seem well aware of anniversaries. Last year they had a special talk for the 50th of Godzilla vs. King Kong.

    Yeah, that one tumblr site is pretty much a bottomless pit of images. As you click on the images, when it sends you to the larger image on another page, check the 'likes' or 'reblogged' list below the image and check some of the other pages that might be slightly different in content and focus.

    No problem...pleased to be of service.

    Yeah, just like here, people over there will 'gnaw' on something until there's nothing left....there's always a big debate between the Florey/Lugosi guys and the Whale/Karloff guys. IMHO, Florey didn't quite have the 'panache' for a big high profile project like that (allegedly he did do a short test reel or two of a couple of scenes that Laemmle Jr. was not at all impressed with). And with Lugosi there's the whole 'he was fired/he quit' thing. From what I've read about Whale, his main thing was he wanted someone that was more or less unknown to add to the mystery of the character and he also felt that Lugosi's face and basic head-shape was not right for the cadaverous look that Mary Shelley had described.

    This one is probably a good place to start tmblr-wise.

    FB sites:

    Keep me posted on your adventures.

    The aforementioned MonsterKid Classic monster message board has entire threads of pics and links, although you may have to 'wade through' a bit. There's also some FB groups are popping up seemingly everywhere there that the members have been posting TONS of stuff...and there's also quite a few tumblr sites and blogs that have a wealth of stuff.

    No problem. I'm just finishing up a biography on the director James Whale and then finishing up the Richard Bojarski book The Films of Boris Karloff.

    Universal Horrors...YES...I highly recommend that one. Do keep in mind that it covers the period from 1931 - 1946.
    Weaver allegedly is working on his follow-up Universal Terrors, which will pick up from there, but mostly cover the 50s.

    Universal Studios Monsters: Legacy of Horror has been in my Amazon shopping cart just waiting until I have enough spare cash to order it.

    Monsters: A Celebration of Classics from Universal Studios looks quite impressive. I'll have to ask my 'contacts' about it.

    Of Gods and Monsters: A Critical Guide to Universal Studios' Science Fiction, Horror and Mystery Films looks interesting and has high ratings in the reviews.

    I'd love to own them all. I'll have to start dropping subtle hints to my wife about birthday, xmas, father's day and just 'cuz.

    There's a 40-minute interview with Dolores Fuller on her years with Wood (she humorously recounts how she started wondering why she kept losing her underwear). There's also commentary for both Bride and Plan 9 (watched the former last night and liked it a lot). There's also an interview with Bela Lugosi as he was checking out of rehab, but it does look like you can watch that free online.

    Started watching The Big Box of Ed Wood and love it. You might find it worth the money ($27 for 13 works on Amazon) if you get the chance. I watched one of his crossover nudies last night (Orgy of the Dead)---not quite porn as you'd call it nowadays but lots of topless girls placed among threadbare monster story. That was barely watchable (except Criswell's wonderful, always-off-the-cards bit as the king of the dead). However, watching Sinister Urge was cool. The real treat is all the extras. Every movie or work has an intro (4-6 minutes) by Ted Newsom, who lists some details, some people, and some of the strengths and weaknesses of each. Those are pretty good.

    They don't list any but I'll let you know when it comes in.
    Yeah, I'm more interested in those two than the others.

    Actually, I have picked up Nightmare in Ecstasy but haven't read it yet. This was film study only. It's called Ed Wood, Mad Genius. It was pretty interesting. I think the guy goes overboard on all the Freudian, Feminist, etc readings, but he really paints Wood as this kind of outsider artist who had to make these films under these conditions to get them out there. I have to agree that Glen or Glenda really comes off as the almost art film.

    Interestingly, Ed Wood wrote a semi-autobiographical book of his own film expereinces called Hollywood Ratrace. I want to get that some time. And Dolores Fuller also wrote about her marriage and experience with Wood in A Fuller Life.
