Son of Frankenstein (1939)***
Needs about 10-15 minutes cut, but surprisingly effective second sequel to the original 1931 classic. Bela Lugosi is unrecognizable as Ygor and turns in one of his better performances. Karloff is in fine form as the monster. Apparently this was the inspiration for Young Frankenstein as many of the setups in that movie appear here.
