After years of listening to commentaries, I'm fast coming to the conclusion that the best ones are for films from the 30s-40s-50s. Why? Because none of the people involved are around any more to contribute, leaving the commentaries in the hands of film historians and critics who can usually be counted on to provide meticulously researched, fascinating, and informative tracks. Such is the case with Tom Weaver, who is better in his solo outings than when paired with others (who don't usually contribute anything special). Once again he draws upon his own considerable resources to tell us everything we need to know about every aspect of this classic Sci-Fi film, delivered at a relentless clip and with plenty of dry humour. If you've heard Weaver's commentaries for CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON or THE WOLF MAN you'll know what to expect. If not, this one is good a place to start as any.
