DescriptionI Was a Teenage Frankenstein (American International, 1957). Very Fine- on Linen. Three Sheet (41.5" X 77.5") Albert Kallis Artwork.
A modern updating of the Frankenstein legend, this unforgettable film combines the best of the then-hot juvenile delinquent genre with the tried and true trappings of the classic monster film to come up with this fun follow-up to I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957). Whit Bissell stars as Professor Frankenstein, descendant of the original doctor, who has his own theories regarding the science of transplantation, as well as an alligator pit in his basement in which to dispose of pesky body parts. When a bunch of teenagers are killed in a car crash near his home, the professor recovers the bodies to stitch together a terrifying new creation (Gary Conway) who - of course - quickly runs amuck. Prior to restoration, the poster had fold wear with small chips, a chip in the left border, pinholes, slight bleedthrough from ink on the verso, and creasing.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
