    Description

    Horror of Dracula (Universal International, 1958). French Grande (47" X 63") Guy Gerard Noel Art.
    A pillar of the classic horror genre, this film inspired fantastic poster design, including this French grande graced with the artwork of Guy Gerard Noel. It's no wonder Noel is considered one of the masters in horror poster art. Britain's Hammer Studios was the first to bring Bram Stocker's character, Count Dracula, to the screen in living, blood-red color. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee were reteamed after Hammer's 1957 hit Curse of Frankenstein, and director Terence Fisher created what is arguably the best Dracula film that has been made in the past eighty years. Lee, as did Bela Lugosi almost three decades before, fashioned a horror icon vampire for a whole new generation of international movie audiences. Restoration has this spectacular piece looking good, with touchup to the folds, small cross fold separation, light creasing, and pinholes in the borders. The linen has been trimmed slightly. Very Fine- on Linen.
