In this episode the Director's Club takes a look at the films of James Whale (with the help of Fresh Perspective's Jeff Broitman).  Whale's innovations in camera movement and special effects, set of quirky character actors in supporting roles, and appreciation of the outsiders in society was put to good use in musicals, war films, and courtroom dramas, but never better than when he was making some of the most iconic horror movies in history!
