    Description

    Son of Frankenstein (Universal, 1939). Fine/Very Fine. Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    After Carl Laemmle sold Universal Studios, it was the new owners' intention to make higher quality films and stay away from what they felt were disreputable horror movies. But with the public clamoring for more of the Monster from the Frankenstein series, the new owners caved into the demands and created the Son of Frankenstein. The studio heads went all-in as they cast Basil Rathbone as the original creator's son Wolf von Frankenstein, and placed Bela Lugosi into one of his best roles ever, as the evil lab assistant Ygor. Boris Karloff would reprise his role of the Monster for the last time and bring an instant sympathy to the character despite heavy makeup and limited dialog. There have been professional corrections to pinholes, as well as to a vertical crease near the left border and a horizontal crease above "Frankenstein" where the card was folded back at one point. The borders have been airbrushed, however there are a few slight stains and smudges that have not been addressed. Featuring great portrait shots of all of the main players, this vibrant title card is an exceptional prize highly desired by many horror enthusiasts.
