DescriptionDracula (1928). Fine/Very Fine. Theatrical Window Card (13.5" X 21.75").
Adapted from Bram Stoker's famous novel, this British stage play by Hamilton Dean made its Broadway debut in 1927 to rave reviews, thanks in no small part to its leading actor. Starring in his first major English-speaking role, Bela Lugosi enthralled audiences with his sophisticated and menacing interpretation of the Count, a performance that would serve him well two years later when auditioning for the role in Tod Browning's seminal film. Hailing from Ford's theatre in Baltimore, Maryland, this stage play window card from the production's national tour features the same iconic artwork from the original Broadway show. The card shows mild edge wear, light surface scuffs, small tears, as well as minor paper loss. Other indications of use includes some toning and staining. There are a couple strips of archival tape on the verso.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
