60th ANNIVERSARY OF ‘BRIDE’
The October 2015 issue of “Classic Images” magazine has a big feature on Ed Wood’s epic horror movie “Bride of the Monster” which was made 60 years ago with Bela Lugosi. The movie is the product of the chemically addicted talents of Wood and Lugosi and I just bought the DVD this past spring.
I first saw it at a midnight screening in 1971 on the U of M Campus with my ex-wife. It’s a cult classic and is the focus of Tim Burton’s “Ed Wood” movie. The actress (Landau) who plays Loretta King is a dead ringer for Ms. King. "Bride" needs to be seen with Monogram's "The Corpse Vanishes" (1940) which has a very similar plot about an aggressive reporter and a mad scientist with Lugosi in the lead and Luana Walters as the journalist.
At least the later may be on YouTube and possibly even "Bride" as well.
