    Frankenstein (Universal, 1931). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    The famous scene in which Frankenstein's monster (Boris Karloff) confronts his creator's bride-to-be (Mae Clarke) is depicted in this magnificent and sought after lobby card from one of the most recognized horror films in motion picture history. Boris Karloff would became an international star because of his portrayal of the monster, and the film, along with Tod Browning's Dracula, would help put Universal back on the financial track in 1931. Since then, the picture, based on the story by Mary Shelley, has become an integral part of popular culture, as even younger generations of film viewers are familiar with Karloff as the horrific monster. This gorgeous lobby card has been restored to address a pinhole in each corner, a small tear in the right border, a tear in the left border that extended into the image, some creasing, and slight fading to the colors. The terrific restoration has the lobby card looking terrific and displaying very well. Collectors will not want to miss out on this, as original cards featuring the monster are incredibly rare and highly sought after. Very Good+.
