    Description

    Shock! Screen Gems Presents Universal Horror (Screen Gems, 1957). Fine. Exhibitor Book (Multiple Pages, 11" X 14.5"). Horror.
    Rare, wonderful large exhibitor book produced by Screen Gems, Inc. advertising the first television release of 52 classic Universal horror movies, such as Frankenstein (1932), Dracula (1931), The Mummy (1932), The Wolf Man (1941), The Invisible Man (1933), Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932), and many others. The book includes an image from each film, its synopsis, news releases and exhibition ideas for its potential broadcast. The Screen Gems campaign was so strong that in 1958 they released "Son of Shock!," featuring their television releases of both Universal and Columbia titles. An unrestored exhibitor book that displays signs of use. Some cover scuffing and wear. The pop-up Frankenstein image has come loose. The book appears to be complete with no cuts. The pages appear to have moisture rippling on the edges and the back three or more pages have some water staining.
