    Description

    Ghost of Frankenstein (Universal, 1942). Insert (14" X 36"). Released Friday the 13th this was the fourth in the Frankenstein series from Universal. Karloff had by this time decided to give up monster roles in favor of his wonderful mad doctor turns. Basil Rathbone was busy being Sherlock Holmes, so the part of Rathbone's famous monster creator, Wolf, was rewritten as his son, Ludwig. Cedric Hardwicke took over the mad scientist role from Mr. Rathbone and the series continued. Reports from the set told of how the make-up man, try as he may, just could not make the prosthetics originally formed for Karloff fit on a slighter Lon Chaney who stepped in to take over the role of Frankenstein's monster. This poster grades as: Good/Very Good. This poster has been paper backed and had paint retouch done to the three fold lines. Also airbrush work was done to chips in the top border and several small chips around the border. Very professional airbrush work was done to restore missing chips of paper in the monster's forehead which extended slightly into the bridge of his nose. This work was very well done and the piece looks tremendous.
