    Description

    Frankenstein (Universal, R-1938). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    To this day, the image of Boris Karloff as the Monster is recognized around the world and his name will be forever associated with Mary Shelley's classic character. The image on this 1938 release poster depicts Karloff as the most important monster to ever stalk the silver screen. The style is reminiscent of German Expressionism and is very similar to the artwork used on the film's original campaign from 1931. To date, this is the only three sheet from any release of Frankenstein to ever surface. The condition is truly stunning as well. Although the poster is 70 years old, it is amazingly clean with very slight repair to a minor crease in the chest area of the Monster. Very Fine+ on Linen.
