DescriptionAbbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Universal International, 1948). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
In a stroke of marketing genius, Universal paired up their greatest comedic duo with a trio of the studio's most famous monsters in this classic horror spoof. Here we see an unsuspecting Lou Costello as he's stalked by the transformed Wolf Man, played by Lon Chaney Jr., a great shot of two of the film's biggest stars. The card shows general border wear, pinholes and smudging in the borders, and some creasing. There is a tear from the top border that goes slightly into the upper background, and there is surface rippling in the top and bottom of the card. Other wear includes a couple of vertical folds, pencil marks in the distributor credits, and paper tape on the verso. There was a tear and paper lifts around the "Meet" of the title, which has paper tape on the verso and paint on the front. There are a few thin scratches in the image that have received minor touchup, including in Lon Chaney's image. Fine-.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
