DescriptionDracula (Universal, R-1939). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
In 1930, Universal was a struggling studio, desperate for a hit. Taking a chance on an adaptation of a popular Broadway play, Carl Laemmle Jr. acquired the film rights to Bram Stoker's immortal novel about an aristocratic vampire, and brought Dracula to the silver screen in 1931. Not only was the film a sensation, but it made an overnight superstar of Bela Lugosi and ushered in the Golden Age of Universal Horror. Beginning in 1938, the studio capitalized on their massive success by re-releasing their popular pictures several times over the decades, with this being our very first reissue card from 1939. It shows pinholes in the corners, small tears, a few corner bends, and unobtrusive stains and smudges. There is a horizontal crease across the card and a drop of paint in Dwight Frye's face with a small paper lift. Fine+.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
