    Description

    Shock! Screen Gems Presents Universal Horror (Screen Gems, 1957). Exhibitor Book (Multiple Pages, 11" X 14.5"). Horror.
    Rare, wonderful large exhibitor book produced by Screen Gems, Inc. advertising the first television release of 52 classic Universal horror movies, such as Frankenstein (1932), Dracula (1931), The Mummy (1932), The Wolf Man (1941), The Invisible Man (1933), Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932), and many others. The book includes an image from each film, its synopsis, news releases and exhibition ideas for its potential broadcast. The Screen Gems campaign was so strong that in 1958 they released Son of Shock!, featuring their television releases of both Universal and Columbia titles. An unrestored exhibitor book that displays signs of use. May include light edge or cover wear, small corner bumps, wear around the plastic comb binding, very minor paper loss, or unobtrusive stains. There is a pop-up of Frankenstein's monster on the inside front cover, which still works, although it has a small spot of paper lift on its right side and some glue stains around its base. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Fine/Very Fine.
