Description by OLDIES.com:

The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942, 100 Minutes): Perhaps the last creation of the classic horror film era, The Ghost of Frankenstein delights fans with its sly humor and deliciously mischievous portrayals - Lon Chaney, Jr. as the monster, Sir Cedric Hardwicke as the twisted son of Dr. Frankenstein, and Bela Lugosi as Frankenstein's dutiful assistant, Ygor. Frankenstein's unscrupulous colleague, Dr. Bohmer (Lionel Atwill), plots to transplant Ygor's brain so he can rule the world using the monster's body, but the plan goes sour when the monster turns malevolent and goes on a rampage.

Son of Frankenstein (1939, 68 Minutes): Praised by critics as one of the best of the Frankenstein series, Son of Frankenstein stars Boris Karloff in the role that made him a screen legend. Returning to the ancestral castle 25 years after the death of the monster, the son of Dr. Frankenstein (Basil Rathbone) meets Ygor (Bela Lugosi), a mad shepherd who is hiding the comatose creature. Hoping to clear the family name, he revives the creature and tries to regabilitate him. His noble goals are dashed when Ygor sends the creature on a killing spree that spreads new panic in the village.

Product Description:

GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN: Lugosi is great as Ygor, in this fourth of the Universal Studios Frankenstein flicks. This time, Dr. Frankenstein thinks his monster could be cured if he only had a normal brain, so with the help of Ygor, they try it again, from the top. But Ygor has his own plans. This was based on a story by Eric Taylor. SON OF FRANKENSTEIN: The son of Dr. Frankenstein returns to his ancestral castle 25 years after his father's death. There he meets Ygor who urges the young doctor to do it again.
