Description

    Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (Universal, 1943). Title Card (11" X 14"). With World War II raging around the globe, it was clear that monster movies were on the way out, as they were far less scary than the real horrors America was encountering in their daily newspapers. Universal decided that the way to invigorate their long-running franchises was to let their monsters meet, which they did for the first time in this classic horror spectacular. This lead to a string of multi-monster movies, including House of Frankenstein (1944) and House of Dracula (1945), before the genre came to a close in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948). Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, however, is considered by many to be the finest of the "team-up" films ever made. Written by Curt Siodmak, who had first brought the Wolf Man to life several years earlier, the film starred Bela Lugosi as the Frankenstein Monster, Lon Chaney Jr. as the lycanthropic Larry Talbot, Maria Ouspenskaya as Maleva the Gypsy woman, Lionel Atwill as the Mayor, and Ilona Massey as the Baroness Frankenstein. It is an engaging thrill-ride from beginning to end. Offered here is a beautiful example of the highly desirable title card, showing the principal players in all their gruesome glory. If you've been looking for a flawless specimen from a Universal Horror classic, look no further; this is it! Near Mint/Mint.
