Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi . . . .
 
You can't talk about classic horror movies - or Universal Studios, for that matter - without talking about the contributions of Karloff and Lugosi.
 
Together or separately, they are engraved on our collective memory!

From "The Black Cat" (1934)

The Black Cat - the first movie pitting Lugosi and Karloff together, in 1941 - was a slam duck for the two who were riding the crest of fame as Horror Icons at Universal Studio.

In "Son of Frankenstein" (1939)
Son of Frankenstein (1939) not only had Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi but Basil Rathbone (the aforementioned son of fame).
It also had one of Maven's favorite movie lines with Lugosi's Ygor talking about Karloff's Frankenstein Monster:  "He . . . does . . . things for me."
