    The Bride of Frankenstein (Universal, 1935). Fine/Very Fine on Paper. Insert (14" X 36").




    Now a much acclaimed monument of the horror genre, most would find it unbelievable that James Whale initially refused to direct The Bride of Frankenstein. Even after being badgered into accepting the Universal sequel, Whale felt that the picture could never hold a candle to his 1931 masterpiece, Frankenstein. And so, he didn't treat the production as a serious directorial effort, but rather what he described as a theatrical "hoot" with layers of dark comedy. Contrary to his expectations, this was exactly what audiences wanted. Rave reviews marked the film's release, heralding the picture's status as James Whale's second masterpiece. Among one of the most desirable posters in Universal's sprawling horror franchise, Heritage has the greatest pleasure to offer the incredibly rare insert for Whale's wildly successful sequel. Only a scant handful of these posters remain, a shame as it highlights each of the main cast members with a fantastic collage in ghoulish hues, perfect for an equally gruesome picture. This highly desirable insert has benefited from professional restoration. With flaws no longer visible, it once displayed fold wear, some small chips at the edges, and scattered pinholes. Moderate tears in the borders were also addressed, a couple of which extended into the outer background. Much like the rest of the poster's former wear, a slight vertical tear at the center fold into the bottom of the Monster's chin has been rendered virtually undetectable after this skilled conservation. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
