DescriptionHouse of Frankenstein (Universal, 1944). Fine+. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
As their various monster series started to wind down, some savvy promoter at Universal hit on the idea of doing a "team-up" film with some of their most popular monsters. The result was House of Frankenstein, featuring Boris Karloff as mad scientist Dr. Niemann, John Carradine as Dracula, Lon Chaney Jr. as the Wolf Man, J. Carrol Naish as the hunchback, and Glenn Strange as the Frankenstein Monster. This, one of the better cards from the set, pictures Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr. and Glenn Strange as the monster. Professional touchup has been applied to pinholes, small tears, thin scratches, as well as some surface scuffs. Also addressed were a couple of instances of surface wear in the image, one of which is Boris Karloff's image. Visible are faint stains and smudges in the borders.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
