DescriptionDracula (Realart, R-1951). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A.
A horror film like no other, Bela Lugosi brought Bram Stoker's vicious vampire to life, as it were, on the silver screen with a chilling performance that has continued to define the character eighty-five years after it first terrified millions of audience members worldwide. Endlessly referenced, parodied, and emulated since the film's first release, Tod Browning's masterpiece is a legendary piece of Hollywood's history that has paved the way for an infinite number of horror films and franchises to come. Far more rare than Realart's Style B half sheet, this brilliant, blood-red poster shares the same artwork found on the 1951 title card, offered to collectors as a Heritage first. Professional touchup has been added to the folds, pinholes, and some small chips and tears in the borders. The poster had a couple of extra vertical folds, and the borders have been neatly airbrushed. Very Fine-on Paper.
Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
