From what Ive seen so far (7th Victim and the 2 Cat People flicks), he made some damn good stuff. The second Cat People wasnt so hot, but the other two were fantastic...definatly looking forward to the rest of his films:)
You've got to get The Leopard Man.

Third greatest Lewton film, in my humble opinion, and very overlooked.

Island of Lost Souls (1933)

Absolutely one of the most underrated horror films of the 1930s. Spectacular and frightening. Based off of the H.G. Wells tale, this is the bizarre story of a mad doctor and his experiments in the transformation of animal to man. His experiments aren't working very well. A man stumbles across the island inhabited by this doctor, and here-in the plot thickens.

Loved. Every. Second.

And, as a kicker, a terrifyingly tense, perfectly executed bang ending.

(Plus, it boasts an almost unrecognizable Bela Legosi, fresh off of Murders in the Rue Morgue, as one of the "things".)

A great movie.

But wasn't it based on H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr Moreau?

Yes, you're absolutely correct. My mistake.

I was thinking Wells and typed Lovecraft. I must have been tired!

Not exactly a classic, but a lot of fun.
