Description

    Dracula's Daughter (Universal, 1936). Insert (14" X 36").
    After the enormous success of Dracula (1931), Universal was hot to make a sequel, and capitalize on the popularity of their new horror star, Bela Lugosi, and quickly signed the entire cast of the first movie for the follow-up. Unfortunately for the studio, the sequel languished in development for several years, as they were unable to find a satisfactory treatment (it's reported that James Whale submitted an outline, but that his ideas were too bizarre and outrageous for the studio to consider). Eventually, a treatment was agreed upon, but long after the cast's contracts had expired (nevertheless, due to a "play or pay" clause in his agreement, Lugosi was paid for a film in which he never appeared). The result was this creepy classic, starring Gloria Holden as the daughter of the Transylvanian Count, who seeks out a noted psychiatrist (Otto Kruger) to help cure her strange addiction to human blood. We've not seen many of the insert posters for the film, making this one an extra special find. It had pinholes in the borders, a staple hole in the bottom background, small chips in the borders, and a slight chip in the upper background, but professional restoration has corrected these signs of wear. An excellent addition to any collection. The linen has been trimmed up to the border. Fine+ on Linen.
