    Description

    Horror of Dracula (Universal International, 1958). Fine on Linen. Italian 4 - Fogli (55.5" X 77.5") Style A.
    Hammer films struck box office gold with its string of gruesome Universal horror remakes, thanks in no small part to the sinister talents of Sir Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. Their second Hammer film after the popular The Curse of Frankenstein in 1957, their work on The Horror of Dracula was met with even greater success and cemented Cushing and Lee's places in film history. The two would make over twenty pictures together, forming a lifelong friendship and becoming genre icons through their extensive work in Hammer's horror films. They generated a loyal following and proved to be major box office draws, each starring in a series of popular Frankenstein and Dracula sequels. The atmospheric 4 - fogli has only been offered once before at Heritage, with this example benefitting from professional corrections to fold wear, small chips, and a couple of tears. The side and top borders had been trimmed to the image and the bottom border was trimmed slightly into the credits, but this has all been replaced. The image itself showed little wear even prior to restoration, and now serves as a perfect display piece.


    Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
