    Description

    The Bride of Frankenstein (Universal, 1935). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Emboldened with the financial success of Frankenstein, director James Whale used the opportunity for a sequel to craft something truly outlandish and macabre. The end result is generally regarded as the pinnacle of the Universal horror cycle. Here the effete Doctor Pretorious (Ernest Thesiger in an unforgettable performance) seeks to build a mate (Elsa Lanchester) for the erstwhile creature (Boris Karloff). This sublime image card is certainly among the best in the set, with an iconic image of the Monster set against the rioting mob that pursues him. The card has corner pinholes, some creasing, and had slight surface paper loss in the top right corner, and Japanese masa paper tape around the verso of the borders to support them. There is also some light staining in two borders. Minimal professional restoration has helped the card's appearance. This is perhaps one of the rarest cards to turn up from this iconic set! Fine/Very Fine.
