    Horror of Dracula (Universal International, 1960). Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 77").
    Posters for this Hammer classic are always in high demand, but this never before offered by Heritage Italian 4 - fogli should be at the top of any horror collector's list. Few other images portray Christopher Lee in his first iteration of the undead count with such realistic ferocity, the cracked glass motif adding to the illustration's amazing dramatic effect. Hammer made one of the best decisions in movie history when they re-teamed Peter Cushing and Lee after the success of the 1957 hit Curse of Frankenstein. With director Terence Fisher at the helm, the studio created what is arguably the best Dracula film that has been made in the past 80 years. Lee, as did Bela Lugosi almost three decades before, fashioned a horror icon for a whole new generation of international movie audiences. A piece sure to stand out in any collection, this amazing poster has partial touchup to the folds, border tears, and a horizontal tear in the "A" of "Vampiro." There are some tape stains and mild toning in the borders, but none of these issues do anything to lessen the stunning impact of Lee's terror-inspiring glare. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
