Legend continues to celebrate the Golden Age of genre cinema with a season of double bills. This week, we head back to the Universal Monsters with the brilliant Bride of Frankenstein (1935), the film in which Boris Karloff’s creature meets the blind hermit and learns how to smoke. This is followed by shuffling terror in The Mummy’s Hand (1940), featuring cult legend George Zucco.
