    Description

    Frankenstein (Universal International, R-1950s). Very Fine on Linen. Full-Bleed German A1 (23.5" X 33.25") Bruno Rehak Artwork.
    Universal's Frankenstein is considered the greatest horror film of all time. This 89-year-old gothic horror film was produced for a sum of $291,000 at the height of the Depression, made a star of a forty-four-year-old Boris Karloff, and made Universal Studios some twelve million dollars richer. It became an almost instant classic of a new genre -- the horror movie -- and is viewed today as one of the true classics of world cinema. Featuring outstanding artwork courtesy of Bruno Rehak, this dramatic piece has had partial touchup to fold wear and separations, pinholes, and a couple of small tears and chips. Some of these issues are still visible. The linen has been trimmed nearly to the borders.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
