The Big Parade of Horror

Subtitles made by Maxwell Whiteman Universal Pictures Universal is one of
the biggest movie companies in the world producing some of the greatest movies
ever made easily one of universals biggest accomplishments is their horror
films in this film we will talk about Universal during each decade from the
1920s to the 1950s and show compilations of clips and trailers of their most
important films per decade the use of all Clips fall under fair use
we here at July 24 of our pictures take full responsibility and hope you enjoy
the film. The 1920s was an interesting time to be alive not because it was the
roaring 20s it was also the decade where movies became part of society who had
comedians like Buster Keaton Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd at their best
he also had dramas like the Ten Commandments The Hunchback of Notre Tom
and the man who laughs the latter two are often listed as being horror films
which many people disagree with 19:27 the first sound film the jazz
singer was released in 1930 Universal made one film twice the cat creeps while
the canary sleeps in English and Spanish unfortunately both versions are
considered lost the next year is where universals horror legacy truly begins in
1931 bela lugosi starred in universals Dracula and Boris Karloff betrayed the
monster in Frankenstein both films have become icons of their genre spawning
sequels crossovers and the rest of the universal catalogue they made films like
