    Description

    Dracula's Daughter (Universal, 1936). Insert (14" X 36").
    With the huge success of Dracula, the movie that made Bela Lugosi an overnight sensation, it's not surprising that Universal wanted a sequel. Eventually, they approached director James Whale, hot off his terrifying triumphs on both Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, but his proposed ideas were considered too outrageous by censorship boards. The studio dropped him from the picture, instead choosing Lambert Hillyer to direct. Together, they decided on a treatment that would focus on Marya Zeleska (Gloria Holden), the daughter of the infamous Transylvanian Count, and her search to be cured from the disturbing compulsion to drink human blood. Before professional restoration, this beautiful and macabre insert displayed fold wear, small chips, creasing, and tears in the interior. Some of these tears extended into the cast members' images and the credits. The borders were once trimmed slightly into the background and have now been replaced, making the poster a gorgeous piece ready for display. Very Good+ on Paper.


    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
