    Dracula's Daughter (Universal, 1936). Insert (14" X 36").
    After the enormous success of Dracula (1931), Universal was primed to make a sequel and to capitalize on the popularity of their new horror star, Bela Lugosi. The studio 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 script 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. The poster has had touchup to chips in the top corners, a tear from the top of the border into the face of Marguerite Churchill, a tear in the right border that extends through Gloria Holden, a large chip in the right border/black background, tears in Kruger's hat, and small chips and tears in the bottom section including the border. Restoration has addressed these signs of handling, and the insert now displays very well. We've seen only a handful of the insert posters for the film, making this lot an exciting opportunity for horror genre collectors. Very Good- on Paper.
