    Description

    Young Frankenstein (20th Century Fox, 1974). Autographed Poster (34.5" X 49") with COA, Style B, John Alvin Artwork.
    The year 1974 proved to be a big one for Mel Brooks. Hot on the heels of the uproarious and successful Blazing Saddles, he would bring to the screen this delightfully twisted farce of Mary Shelley's classic horror novel. Starring Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Teri Garr, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman, Madeline Kahn, and Gene Hackman, Brooks's parody is one of his best, and introduced the world to the now classic routine in which the doctor and his creation perform "Puttin' on the Ritz." Featuring John Alvin's instantly recognizable art of Wilder as Dr. Frankenstein (That's "Fronckensteen!") and Boyle as the creature, this grin-inducing poster is signed by the late artist, and includes a certificate of authenticity from the estate of John Alvin, signed by his widow. A rare format, the poster is in excellent condition with only mild edge wear and minor tears. Rolled, Very Fine+.
