    I am considering purchasing the DRACULA, MUMMY, FRANKENSTEIN, INVISIBLE MAN, WOLF MAN & CREATURE sets but want to know if they contain the excellent 30-minute documentaries (and for that matter commentaries) ported-over from the original collector's DVD's... I know that the A&C MEET FRANKENSTEIN re-issue in the A&C #3 set has dropped all of these extras, which is incredibly unfortunate. The original single movie edition was allowed to go out of print, God knows why. That leaves:

    DRACULA
    FRANKENSTEIN
    BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN
    THE MUMMY
    CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON
    THE INVISIBLE MAN
    THE WOLF MAN

    as films that once had plenty of extras - do they still?

    Also, I've not been able to locate the 1943 PHANTOM OF THE OPERA except on eBay. I assume this was allowed to go OOP, with no imminent re-issue news?

    All of the documentaries were retained. The only thing NOT retained is the trailer for The Wolf Man on its Legacy set. Probably an oversight, considering all the other trailers were kept. And not only are all of the commentaries kept, the two Creature sequels also have commentaries... exclusive to the Legacy set.

    The old Phantom '43 DVD was brought back into print, though. Most likely to tie in with the new movie. You can buy it here for the cheapest online price:
