DescriptionFrankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (Universal, 1943). One Sheet (27" X 41") Karl Godwin Artwork.
Illustrations for monster movies 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 the horror icons Lon Chaney Jr. and Bela Lugosi to much studio fanfare and audience excitement. Chaney returns to his signature role of werewolf Larry Talbot, while Lugosi finally dons the Frankenstein Monster makeup for his first and last time. Maria Ouspenskaya also returns in her gypsy role as Maleva, with Patric Knowles and Ilona Massey co-starring as Dr. Mannering and Baroness Frankenstein. Guaranteed to be a popular item among die-hard horror fans, this scarce one sheet looks positively ghoulish after professional conservation corrected fold wear and separation, a small tear at the upper vertical fold, and some mild chips in the borders and crossfolds. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
