    Description

    Frankenstein (Universal, 1931). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Hollywood legend has it that director James Whale cast actress Mae Clarke without a second thought for this classic horror film. His quote being, "I asked for Mae Clarke for Elizabeth because of her intelligence, fervor, and sincere belief that Frankenstein would claim the public interest." This lovely condition card depicts a fainted Clarke laying on the bed after her encounter with the Monster. She is being awakened by co-stars Colin Clive and John Boles, along with a whole slew of cast members. Benefitting from professional restoration, this card once had mild edge wear at the top with some slight creases. There were pinholes primarily in the borders, as well as a few at the top and bottom of the image, and a thin horizontal crease in the upper left. The bottom of the card had a mild tear through the title, and there were a couple of faint vertical creases at the top and bottom of the left side. The borders, white background, and verso of the card have been airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
