DescriptionBride of the Monster (Filmmakers Releasing, 1956). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
Devotees of Ed Wood and Bela Lugosi will not want to miss this gem from one of the director's greatest productions. Lugosi was winding down his career when he starred as the mad scientist Dr. Eric Vornoff in Bride of the Monster. The making of this movie is well-documented in Tim Burton's Ed Wood, including the theft of the rubber octopus from Republic Studios (it was originally created for John Wayne's Wake of the Red Witch). Unfortunately, the motor that operated the tentacles was left behind, which is painfully obvious in the final film. Nevertheless, this is Ed Wood, master of the bizarre and unusual, at his finest. Paper from the majority of Ed Wood's movies is rare and highly sought after, making the half sheet a fabulous find for one lucky collector. This bit of 1950s camp looks great, displaying mild edge wear, light creasing, pinholes, and small tears. Rolled, Very Fine-.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
