DescriptionDracula (Universal, R-1947). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
With the incredible success of both The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Phantom of the Opera, Universal magnate Carl Laemmle Jr. set his studio on the course that would make his father's company famous: that of producing the most important and significant horror films in the history of cinema. After auditioning several actors, the studio settled on the Hungarian heart-throb who made the role famous on the stage, Bela Lugosi. Posters for this landmark film have always been highly prized and this early reissue half sheet is no exception. This rare copy shows slight fold wear with a separation to the left, a few small tears, unobtrusive smudges, and several pinholes in the borders. There is also a single pinhole in the background, some light edge toning, and there are a couple of border chips. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $6,000 - $12,000.
