    Jack Pierce Scrapbook Lot - Bride of Frankenstein (Universal, 1935). Still (8" X 13.75"). Universal's makeup ace Jack Pierce gave Karloff's re-appearance as the Monster special attention. He decided to alter the 1931 design to display the after-effects of the mill fire, adorning Karloff with a singed hairstyle that actually "grows" during the course of the film. But the real hint that this wonderfully shadowed photo by Roman Freulich is from "Bride" is Karloff's "full-face" look, a result of the actor wearing his full bridgework in order to speak as the Monster (that bridgework had been removed in the original film, resulting in the Monster's gaunt appearance). Even this early effort would be further modified, making this photograph a true piece of film history, direct from Pierce's own collection. The borders have been trimmed, but that special image is intact, with only small tape residue in the left corners, and spots of tape residue in the left and bottom fields. Don't miss your chance to bid on this historic beauty. From the Personal Scrapbook of Jack Pierce. Very Good/Fine.
