    Description

    Frankenstein (Universal, R-1947). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). One of the most iconic films ever made, Universal's 1931 production of Frankenstein made a star of actor Boris Karloff and cemented the Golden Age of Horror, initiated earlier that year with Bela Lugosi's performance in Dracula. Paper from this landmark film is incredibly scarce, bringing record prices when it does appear at auction. Many collectors see the re-release paper, such as the title card offered here, as an attractive alternative to the original paper, as it represents a chance to own something from an important film at a reasonable price. This card has a Canadian censor stamp on Mae Clarke's legs, as well as a slight dust shadow, a small tear, and some minor tape residue in the top border. Additionally, the upper left corner within the border was chipped off and has been replaced. In spite of these flaws, this is a very attractive card with a stunning image of Karloff as the Monster. Fine/Very Fine.
