    Description

    Frankenstein (Universal, 1931). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Released shortly after Todd Browning's unexpectedly successful "Dracula" in 1931, "Frankenstein" was the second film in the annals of Universal's classic monster movies. Shot on a budget of less than $300,000, "Frankenstein" helped to bring Universal back on financial track in 1931, at a time when the studio was writing nothing but red ink. In retrospect it is clear that these films not only saved the studio, but also became an integral part of popular culture for generations to come. Even today, almost 70 years after the original release, everyone is familiar with Boris Karloff as Frankenstein's monster. Offered in this lot is the card referred to by collector's as the "torture" card. There was a tear in the left top border and two pinholes in the center of the card that have been restored. There is very slight corner wear, and whiter paper than we usually see. Very Fine+.
