    Has The Invisible Man ever been available on CD? If not in it's entirety, is the main theme available anywhere? I like the score anyway, but I've been watching Flash Gordon and now really want it. [​IMG]

    That would be cool Greg. I always consult Footlight for my soundtrack habit. All they have listed on their site is a compilation that includes Son of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man Returns, and The Wolf Man. Not exactly what you're looking for, but it may suffice. Also, call Footlight, if they can't find it, it just ain't out there!

    I didn't think of Footlight, but I have used them before. To this day, they are the ONLY ones I have ever found carrying the Chaplin Revue CD. Great store.
    I actually have the CD you mentioned, and it's quite good. I especially like the Wolfman segment. I don't think the Invisible Man Returns had the main title cue from the original movie, but I haven't listened to that much. I haven't seen the movie yet. [​IMG] If you don't have this disc, you might want to go to Amazon. They have some clips.
    Anyway, thank you for looking that up!

    You're welcome Greg! And, the Invisiblke Man series is one of my favorites from that era/genre. Of course, Frankie and the Wolf Man are too... and Dracula... and the Creature... aw hell, I love 'em all! But really, I always had a blast watching the Invisible Man films.

    I think I read somewhere that the Creature sequels will be getting a double feature disc next year. I hope the Invisible Man sequels will get two of 'em!
    Then again, I've yet to even pick up this year's batch. Too expensive until the box set.

    My thoughts exactly - I too am waiting for a box set, which will certainly bring about a price reduction.
    I am rather dismayed they went with the Dracula sequels before doing the Invisible Man sequels... those are clearly superior to the Dracula ones. Well, to me anyway. I personally would want them over the Creature sequels even, but I know many, many Universal Monster fans feel differently. In either case, these two franchises sequels are much more popular than the Frankenstien or Dracula sequels (with the OBVIOUS exception of Bride of Frankenstien). I guess the suits felt they could cash in on the names, rather than actually doing their marketing research. Had they researched well, I think they would have found that Creature and Invisible Man would have stirred up more interest.
    But then, I could be full of shit. [​IMG]
