The 1973 TV mini-series has finally arrived on a lovely loving Blu-ray from Shout. The film receives a lovely looking transfer. Colors are robust, detail is since along with depth. It’s from an inter-positive as I recall as the original negative burned in the universal fire. A little bit of speckling, some minor damage at a few points and in the original aspect ratio. This,is the full 182 minute version. ‘nice extra include a commentary track, the original prologue with James Mason (and a very fake looking headstone for Mary Shelley—she wasn’t buried at the cemetery that it was shot at), a trio of extensive interviews with Leonard Whitting, Jane Seymour and co-writer Don Bachardy that, when taken together un about over 60 minutes. A nice bit rate as well. For those who were also hoping for the theatrical version, it isn’t here. A pity that none of the outtakes exist (why would they save them in 1973?) as, reportedly, the prologue with each member playing Mary Shelly, Byron, Polidori, Percy Shelly may have been short (in an echo and tribute to The Bride of Frankenstein) may have been shot but discarded.
