    Description

    Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Universal International, 1948). Fine- on Linen. Insert (14" X 36").
    Abbott and Costello are at it again, this time with the likes of Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr, and Glenn Strange in tow for a riotous mashup of horror and humor. The first of its kind, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein created a whole new lineup of Universal creature-comedy crossover films, following up with such titles as Abbott and Costello Meet the KillerBoris Karloff, Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man, and Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy. One of the best posters produced for the film, this colorful insert has undergone professional restoration to address edge and fold wear, fold separations, moderate tears, and a couple of small chips. There was a tear that extended from the top border through Bela Lugosi's image to slightly past the top horizontal fold. The borders and white background have been airbrushed, as well as Lugosi's credit and some of the text. There is some post-restoration wear at the middle fold, and the linen has been nearly trimmed to the borders. Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
