A Jean Arthur box set might be easily overlooked by the casual horror
fan, but a closer look reveals that two of the films contained in Sony/TCM's JEAN ARTHUR DRAMA COLLECTION ($39.99) were
directed by Lambert Hillyer (DRACULA'S DAUGHTER), while the other two are
the work of Roy William Neill (FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN) and
Erle C. Kenton (ISLAND OF LOST SOULS, HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN). Tonight, I
watched the first film in the set -- Neill's WHIRLPOOL (1934, review forthcoming on my Pause. Rewind. Obsess. blog) -- and
it's fantastic. Now I'm excited about cozying up with the other three.
It's a TCM website exclusive from Sony.
