Description

    Horror of Dracula (Universal International, R-Early 1960s). Silk-Screen British Quad (30" X 40") Day-Glo Style.
    England's Hammer Studios brought the horror film genre back from the dead with this film and its counterpart, Curse of Frankenstein (1957). Both pictures, shot in the faux-Gothic style that would become Hammer's trademark, featured future superstars Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, who would become to horror fans of the 1960s what Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi were to moviegoers of an earlier era. Known simply as Dracula in its native England (it was retitled in the U.S. to avoid confusion with the Lugosi version, which had recently been re-issued by Realart), this film was notable for its gruesome aspects (even more vivid in full color) and the powerful performance of Lee in the title role. He scarcely has any dialogue (only thirteen lines in the whole film), hissing and snarling like an animal instead. Lee would remark later: "I could do everything in those fangs... but eat." The poster shows pinholes in the top border, slight edge tears at the folds, a small tear in the right border, and minor offset in the folds. It has faint staining and very light toning in the interior. There are creases and some wrinkling along each border where the poster was folded back. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
