Description

    Horror of Dracula (Universal International, 1958). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Horror, as a film genre, had been in a slump for quite some time by 1958. Universal, the previous leader in the field, had put their monsters in mothballs some years before, preferring to concentrate on other areas, such as the emerging field of science fiction. Stepping in to fill the breach in 1957 was Hammer Films, whose first foray into horror, Curse of Frankenstein, was an unqualified success. As a follow-up, they released this picture, directed by Terence Fisher and starring Peter Cushing as Doctor Van Helsing and Christopher Lee as the immortal Count Dracula. Once again, the film was box office gold, firmly establishing the Hammer Horror franchise that would continue unabated for the next several decades. Of all the films released during the Hammer years, many consider this, the film that put both Cushing and Lee on the map, to be the very finest. This striking one sheet had fold wear with pinpoint crossfold separation, pinholes in the corners, a marker line on the back that slightly bleeds through to the front, and a ballpoint pen mark in the left border. These flaws have largely been addressed by professional restoration, resulting in a clean, and very displayable, copy of this highly desirable poster. Very Fine- on Linen.
