    Dracula (Universal, 1931). Very Fine. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Already a success on Broadway as the vampire Count Dracula, Bela Lugosi nevertheless was not the early choice to play Bram Stoker's legendary villain in Universal's film version. The Hungarian actor had to work hard to win the role. Directed by Tod Browning, Bela Lugosi's performance is sensational, one all later actors aspire to, making this one of the finest horror films of all time. All material from this early masterpiece is highly prized and therefore very scarce. A scene card of rare beauty is offered, featuring Dracula carrying an entranced Helen Chandler, with an inset of Lugosi and Edward Van Sloan as Van Helsing. The card shows a slight bit of handling wear on the borders and some bit of toning, typical for a card this age. There is a pinhole in the top center border and what appears to be a tiny repaired pinhole in the upper right green field. The card has a slight crease, almost indetectable, which runs from the lower right border into the staircase and into the lower part of Chandler's image. There is some grease pencil and rubber stamp on the verso. The colors are fabulous on this card.
