    The Ghost of Frankenstein (Universal, 1942). Folded, Very Fine-. Insert (14" X 36").
    Lon Chaney, in his only appearance as The Monster, is convinced by Ygor (Bela Lugosi in one of his best roles), to allow Dr. Frankenstein to swap brains between the Monster and a little girl. Cedric Hardwicke as Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein was in fine form but it was Lugosi who stole the show as the scheming Ygor. Ygor has plans of his own, to have his brain into the Monsters body and therefore give him a stronger body that the one he has now. Evelyn Ankers, Ralph Bellamy, Lionel Atwill, and Dwight Frye rounded out the cast on this classic from the original Universal Monster series. This insert has extremely good color with no signs of any fading. Although it is folded, there is very little color breakage on the folds, and shows only slightly along the upper horizontal fold. There is some very fine surface scratching primarily on Hardwicke and Atwill's faces, and there is a tear in the lower left corner and the upper right corners, both of which have been reinforced with tape on the verso. Overall, this is one of the better examples of this poster we've seen.

    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
