5.0 out of 5 stars A Definite 'Must Buy'!, 4 April 2003
By 
This review is from: The Wolf Man [DVD] (DVD)
Considering that "The Wolf Man" was made long before the days of the "Making of" trend, Universal have produced an excellent set of DVDs in their "Classic Monsters" collection that mean that even if you already have these films on tape it's well worth replacing them with the DVD versions.
As a previous reviewer remarked, although "The Werewolf of London" came out a few years before "The Wolf Man", it is the later film which has become THE classic, not least because of the innovativeness of the film's writer, Curt Siodmak, who made up a great deal of what is now taken to be age old werewolf mythology.
So the film itself is great, and has been well detailed by previous reviewers. What makes this such an attractive package is the extras, and I don't mean the people standing around in the background not saying anything.
There's a full length documentary "Monster by Moonlight" that places this film in context with other films of its kind - through to "Abbott & Costello Meet the Wolf Man" - and with the golden age of Universal horror films in general.
And there's "The Wolf Man Archives" - a host of original stills and adverts - PLUS the theatrical trailer.
Not enough? Then how about the heart of the "extras" - the full length "Feature Commentary" by Tom Weaver.
This is a solid gold narrative covering production details, backgrounds on the story and the actors, lost out-takes - just a wealth of information that makes the film even more interesting to watch than it was before.
No matter how many times you've seen the film in the past, no matter if you already have the video, if this is the kind of film you like, you'll enjoy this DVD package even more.

The "full length" documentary "Monster by Moonlight" is only 33 minutes long.
