  1. Another great post, Chris! I particularly enjoyed the vintage newspaper article “Universal Closely Guards ‘Invisible Ray’ Sets.”

    The Invisible Ray and the Black Cat (1934) – which Svengoolie aired November last year – are two of my favorite non-Frankenstein films pairing Karloff and Lugosi. Lesser-seen Universal titles like these, along with The Raven (1935) and Black Friday (1940) are one of the reasons I’m grateful for Svengoolie and MeTV for continuing to air these Horror classics.

    • Hi, Gregory! Glad you enjoyed my recent blog post on Svengoolie’s upcoming showcase of “The Invisible Ray” (1936), with the abstract on Universal executives guarding the “Invisible Ray” sets at Universal City (from the Lantern Media History Archive database, which is a fun and fascinating resource full of vintage cinema/studio publications and advertisements for feature films)! http://lantern.mediahist.org/

      One of my many favorite Karloff-Lugosi Universal cinematic pairings as well (kudos to Svengoolie, Me-TV and their Sat. evening Universal horror/thriller showcase)!

      Looking forward to watching Svengoolie’s presentation of “The Invisible Ray” (and live-tweeting Sven’s showcase with you and all fellow SvenPals from coast-to-coast) this Sat. on Me-TV!
      Kudos/peace/cheers to you and fellow SvenPals! -Chris Hamby

      P.S.- I’ve also updated the photo links (on the WordPress platform, for “full-screen” size versions of the photos featured in the blog post on Sven and “The Invisible Ray”).
