DescriptionHouse of Dracula (Universal, 1945). One Sheet (27" X 41").
After the success of House of Frankenstein, Universal quickly put a sequel into production to reunite their stable of monsters once again. Glenn Strange electrified audiences in his role of Frankenstein's Monster, John Carradine flapped his way back into Dracula's cape, and Lon Chaney Jr. bared fangs once again as the Wolf Man. This poster, although a late entry in the Universal Monster series, remains one of the best and most popular among collectors. Professional restoration has made the poster look fantastic once again, having corrected wear at the folds, particularly the lower fold, pinholes in the outer image, and a few tears near the upper right corner that extend slightly into the background. There were a few small chips and a quarter-sized crossfold chip in the bottom horizontal fold, and there is a reattached chip in the left border and background. The poster had a bit of faint staining in the right border that has also been addressed. Coveted by innumerable horror fans, this display-ready piece would make an excellent addition to any collection. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
