The first story is a must!

I f you like the old classic Universal monster movies you should listen to the first story of this collection. I heard a rumor it may have inspired the original Mummy movie. The actor is very good, though the subsequent stories suffer from production goofs, The Man with the Watches in particular seems to have been badly edited, and some of the story is out of sequence. Overall if you like classic mystery and horror this is still a good collection.
