If you were to get 1 Monster Legacy Collection...which one??

would it be? I think I only want one and think it is probably between Dracula and Frankenstein. While I have always been more enamorate of the Dracula and vampire genre in general, the Frankenstein quintilogy of movies seems like a better crop of the older Universal monster flicks. Can people post some thoughts as to which set is the better out of the 2 or the 3 (including Wolfman) if you have all 3 or 2 or any for that matter? Thanks in advance for any comments...

Frankenstein. The movies are more entertaining and the audio/video quality is far better.

Another vote for Frankenstein. The original is great and it has the strongest sequals when compared to The Wolf Man and Dracula. The Bride of Frankenstein is regarded by many as superior even to the original. In addtion, with the Frankenstein Legacy Collection you get two great documentaries and commentaries rather than one.

I haven't watched all of them yet, but I started with Frankenstein and they are great. Wolfman and Dracula look good, but I think Frankenstein is the best. This was a blind buy and one of the best ones.

Frankenstein. Although I recommend saving up for the boxed set with the three movies and the busts. The best price I've found is through the Share the Love Program at Amazon. $51.xx
