    Description

    Dracula (Stage Play, 1928). Window Card (13.5" X 21.75"). This is the rarely-seen original theater window card advertising the stage version of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula, to be performed beginning on November 5, 1928 at Ford's Theatre in Baltimore, MD. This play first appeared in the U.K. in 1923 and made its New York Broadway debut in 1927. The Broadway version featured Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula and Edward Van Sloan as Van Helsing. Lugosi's success in the play led to his role in the 1931 Universal film, which also starred Van Sloan, and rocketed Lugosi to international fame. The play was highly successful and toured for over two years. This window card was created by the same printer and has the exact same graphics as the window card printed for the Broadway run. There is a center fold line (reinforced on the back with tape), light creases, pinholes and the tip-ends of three corners have been replaced. The card has had minor restoration and displays very well. Fine.
