The best thing about Universal’s Bela Lugosi Collection DVD release is that it’s really the Lugosi/Karloff collection.

Plowing through the set for the umpteenth time, I’m reminded of this scene from Tim Burton’s Ed Wood, in which an older Lugosi (Martin Landau) has a few choice words about his former co-star.
