    Description

    Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Universal International, 1948). Fine+ on Linen. Trimmed Belgian (14.75" X 19").
    Comedy team Bud Abbot and Lou Costello made this widely successful comeback film after their careers floundered in the post-war years. The moneymaker featured some of Universal Studios' biggest horror stars reprising their most famous roles, with Lon Chaney Jr. as the Wolf Man, Glenn Strange as Frankenstein's Monster and Bela Lugosi in his signature role of Count Dracula. Appearing at Heritage for the first time, this Belgian is one of only a few posters to feature the title Abbott & Costello & les Monstres, as the title was changed to Abbott & Costello Contre Frankenstein right before the film hit distribution, and so the posters were typically sent out with the text sniped over or already printed with the new title. The poster has had light touchup applied to slight fold wear and separations, minor paper lifts in the title and background, as well as some of the small tears. Still visible is light edge toning and the imprint area has been trimmed.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
