    Description

    Son of Frankenstein (Universal, 1939). Midget Window Card (8" 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. Offered in this lot is only the second midget window card we have had for this film. The card has had the upper white imprint area replaced with no loss to the image as well as a small corner chip from the lower right corner. The lower left corner was broken off just into the image but has been expertly reattached. There is a small tear in the left from the border into the red background by 3/4". The colors are vibrant and the card displays beautifully after expert restoration. Fine+.


    Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
