    Dracula's Daughter (Universal, 1936). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    Here she is, in her full horrifying glory-- Countess Marya Zaleska, Daughter of Dracula, played to the hilt by Gloria Holden in a spectacular sequel to Universal's sensational hit Dracula (1931). Paper from this early horror classic is difficult to find, and offered here is the larger-than-life three sheet, which is the only known copy to exist, and a stunning beauty to behold. James Whale, after the huge success of both Frankenstein (1931) and Bride of Frankenstein (1935), was asked to write the screenplay and direct, but his proposed treatment was considered too extravagant, and he was dropped from the picture, replaced by Lambert Hillyer. The story picks up after the death of Dracula, with Professor Von Helsing (Edward Van Sloan) attempting to prove that he did not commit murder, as the vampire was already technically dead for hundreds of years. He seeks the aid of a psychiatrist played by Otto Kruger, who is also enlisted by Zaleska to overcome her murderous tendencies and insatiable thirst for blood. Holden is powerful in her starring performance and the chilling atmosphere of the film ranks this as one of Universal's top horror classics. This highly desired three sheet has been professionally conserved to address light edge wear at the top, a minor chip at the left edge, a tear in the lower left of the background, and some fold wear with paper separation. For Universal horror collectors, this iconic poster will be a must-have treasure! Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
