    Description

    Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (Universal, 1943). One Sheet (27" X 41") Karl Godwin Artwork.
    Illustrations for monster posters don't get much better than this, with two of the industry's most fearsome beasts meeting toe-to-toe and fist-to-face in Karl Godwin's iconic image. The first in a series of creature crossover films, this Universal classic teamed up two of the biggest names in horror, Lon Chaney Jr. and Bela Lugosi, to much studio fanfare and audience excitement. Chaney returns to his signature role of werewolf Larry Talbot, a part he would play a total of five times over the course of his career, and Lugosi finally dons The Frankenstein Monster makeup for his first and last time. Already guaranteed to be a popular item among die-hard collectors, this scarce one sheet is in extraordinary shape with touchup only to the folds and a pinhole in Frankenstein's image. There are a couple of very minor unaddressed pinholes in the image area, but do not at all detract from the impact of this excellent piece. Very Fine+on Linen.


    Estimate: $9,000 - $18,000.
