DescriptionHouse of Dracula (Universal, 1945). Fine/Very Fine on Paper. Insert (14" X 36").
A follow-up to House of Frankenstein, this Universal "monster bash" includes the Wolf Man, Dracula, the Mad Doctor, a hunchback, and Frankenstein's Monster. Onslow Stevens is the psychiatrist enlisted to "cure" Count Dracula (John Carradine) and the Wolf Man (Lon Chaney Jr.) of their respective afflictions. Jane Adams, often cast as a woman with physical deformities, is the doctor's loyal hunchbacked nurse, and Glenn Strange plays the Monster. Wonderfully lurid, this insert is quite the find for horror fans, as it features portraits of all the key players looking their deranged best! Professional restoration has been applied to edge and fold wear, fold separations, pinholes, and creases. There were a few small tears and minor chips. Some of these issues are still faintly visible, and the poster shows mild color fading. The borders have been airbrushed.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
