Description

    Dracula (Realart, R-1951). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    At the beginning of the 1930s, movie studios were becoming known for certain kinds of pictures: MGM released the greatest musicals, Warner Brothers was known for their hard-hitting "social problem" dramas, etc. Desperate to keep up, Carl Laemmle, head of Universal Studios, was looking for something to set his studio apart, when this movie handed him the solution to his worries on a silver platter. With the release of Dracula on February 12, 1931, the Golden Age of Universal Horror was born, and Laemmle's studio would spend the next 15+ years scaring the pants off of audiences world-wide. Offered here is a great halfsheet from the Realart re-release of this classic film. It had fold wear with crossfold separation, a missing bottom right corner, small holes in the top border, and a tear in the bottom left border, but expert professional restoration has addressed all of these minor issues. You'll go batty for this amazing poster! Very Good on Paper.
