    Dracula (Stage Play, 1928). Window Card (13.75" X 21.75"). Horror.
    This is the rarely-seen original theater window card advertising the stage version of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula, to be performed beginning on November 5, 1928 at Ford's Theatre in Baltimore, MD. This play first appeared in the U.K. in 1923 and made its New York Broadway debut in 1927. The Broadway version featured Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula and Edward Van Sloan as Van Helsing. Lugosi's success in the play led to his role in the 1931 Universal film, which also starred Van Sloan, and rocketed Lugosi to international fame. The play was highly successful and toured for over two years. This window card was created by the same printer and has the exact same graphics as the window card printed for the Broadway run, and was produced at a slightly smaller size than normal window cards. It was had touchup to the theatre box, the image area, and to a horizontal crease through the image that is now barely perceptible. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Fine/Very Fine.
