    Description

    Man Made Monster (Universal, 1941). Title Lobby Card & Lobby Cards (6) (11" X 14").
    Universal dominated the horror genre through the 1940s, and this second-tier project -- second to established franchises like Frankenstein and The Wolf Man, though it was originally launched as a Boris Karloff-Bela Lugosi vehicle, still holds up well. The tale is notable for the establishment of Lon Chaney Jr's legacy of cult, low-budget horror. Chaney stars with horror veteran Lionel Atwill in this dark and creepy tale, where Atwill is a mad scientist who turns Chaney into an electrified murderous creature with the ability to kill with just his touch. Lobby cards for the film are certainly scarce, and these cards generally show slight edge wear, light creases, unobtrusive stains and smudges, and mild tears into background. One card has surface scratches in the background and another has a bit of red ink in the top border. A few of the cards have cellophane tape on the verso, and several have pinholes and paper lifts, some of which have been colored in with ink. Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
