    Description

    Dracula (Universal, R-1947). Three Sheet (41.25" X 79.5").
    Heritage is thrilled to present this fabulous three sheet and the only known copy for the 1947 reissue of the iconic Universal horror classic starring Bela Lugosi! Because of the popularity and the huge money making potential of the film released in 1931, Universal Studios reissued it in 1938 and again in 1947. All of the posters for this second re-release of the film have always been extremely scarce and most collectors have never seen this poster before now as its existence was only rumored for many years. Prior to restoration, the piece showed very small chips and tears along the folds/cross folds, a chip in the "L" of "Dracula", creasing, and missing paper in the borders. Careful restoration, including touchup to the folds and borders, has given this poster a like-new appearance, ready to be displayed and admired for its rareness and beauty. A jewel of a find, this three sheet is the opportunity of a lifetime for classic movie poster aficionados! Fine+ on Linen.
