    Description

    The Ghost of Frankenstein (Universal, 1942). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Though it was the fourth in the series of the Frankenstein saga produced by Universal studios, this one sheet is a very scarce commodity indeed! This is a Heritage first and one of only a few one sheets to turn up from this title in the last two decades. This is the first picture in which the Monster was portrayed by someone other than Boris Karloff. Lon Chaney Jr. dons the monster makeup in this installment, as mad Ygor (Bela Lugosi) schemes with the disgraced Dr. Bohmer (Lionel Atwill) to have Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein (Sir Cedric Hardwicke) place his brain into the body of the mighty creature. This gorgeous and vibrant poster had a bit of water soluble paint over the word "Ghost," of the upper title only. The poster also had pinholes in the corners and minor fold wear. There was a slight bit of black overprint into the yellow box credits which has also been corrected. The professional conservation has the poster looking perfect and this has to be one of the cleanest of the known copies. From the Theaters of Old Detroit Collection. Very Fine on Linen.
