Did 1941's "The Wolf Man" already get a recent DVD reissue? That's one of my all-time favorites.

"The Wolfman" was part of the 4 film box set that came out a couple years ago. The other films were "Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman", Werewolf Of London" and "She-Wolf Of London".
There is a documentary on the Wolfman films plus and audio commentary by film historian Tom Weaver for the film "The Wolf Man".
It can be purchased for about $20 new.
I love these films.
