Description

    Dracula's Daughter (Universal, 1936). Insert (14" X 36"). After the enormous success of 1931's Dracula, the movie that made an instant star out of leading man Bela Lugosi, Universal Studios naturally wanted to produce a sequel, much as they did for the equally-successful Frankenstein. With James Whale, director of both Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, riding high as the top director at Universal, he was initially assigned the task of bringing a Dracula sequel to life. However, the treatment he submitted was, according to all accounts, so elaborate and outrageous that he was soon taken off the project. The film as it was ultimately made focuses on Countess Marya Zaleska (Gloria Holden), a young woman with a familiar taste for blood and a noble lineage, whose father was a Transylvanian count. Moody and atmospheric, the movie is a worthy addition to the Universal Horror pantheon. The insert offered here had fold wear and a large horizontal tear at the top of the insert, from the left border through about three quarters of the poster's width. At the top, a large piece was missing, and the words "SHE'LL GET" were painted in. The restoration, which includes a certain amount of airbrushing, is absolutely first-rate, making these flaws virtually unnoticeable. Paper from this title, as from all Universal Horror films, is extremely scarce and desirable, so don't let this one pass you by! Very Good on Paper.
