Weekly Movie Poster Auction Format Change

Our Weekly Movie Poster auctions will close with a live auction on HA.com's proprietary platform, Heritage Live!, beginning with the auction that ends Sunday, April 13. Each lot will now be offered one at a time, in lot number order, in a live auction beginning at 8:00 PM CT; with live bidders on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. Bidders in our previous Signature auctions will recognize the format as it is the same platform utilized by live Internet bidders at the time of the auction sessions. There will be no change in how bidders place their secret maximum bids during the week the auction is open on the Heritage Auctions website. Once bidding on the Heritage website ends, 2 hours before the live session starts, bidders will still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live! All existing bids will compete with any live bidding during the Heritage Live! auction. Each lot will open, request live bids, and then close when the bidding is finished.

You will be able to get to the Heritage Live! bidding software from many pages on the website, including the home page, each lot page, the auction home page, MyBids, and MyTrackedLots. For more information about Heritage Live, please visit HA.com/live. If you have any questions regarding this exciting new development, please contact Grey Smith at 1-800-872-6467 x1367.

Description:
Dracula (Universal, 1931). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
A young Carl Laemmle Jr., son of the founder of Universal Studios, saw box office potential in an 1897 Victorian novel by Irish author Bram Stoker, about a vampire trying to relocate from Transylvania to England. The novel had made a very successful transition to the stage and was a huge hit on Broadway by the 1920s. Against his father's wishes, Laemmle Jr. struck a deal with the author's widow and the stage was set for the beginning of one of the most famous monster films ever made. Universal would produce this first sound horror film starring a little known Hungarian actor, Bela Lugosi, fresh from his success on the stage as the title character, Dracula. This beautiful card is only the second time Heritage has offered a title card to this famous film. This wonderful and vibrant copy has had no restoration and exhibits three pinholes, one in each upper corner within the border and one in the lower border left side. There is a tiny surface stain barely noticeable on the tip of Lugosi's nose and a very small stain on the verso but not visible on the front. There is a rubber stamp of a previous owner also on the verso. This is a beautiful card and would be a cornerstone to the most discriminating collector. From the Collection of Ron Moore. Very Fine.
