    Description

    Son of Frankenstein (Universal, 1939). Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39.5"). Gosta Aberg Artwork.
    Artist Gosta Aberg delivered a terrifying, larger-than-life Monster (Boris Karloff) on this very rare Swedish poster from Son of Frankenstein. This was the third of Universal's Frankenstein films, and the last worthwhile entry before the series dissolved into sequels without the Karloff monster. At 51 years of age, Karloff was getting too old to deal with the eight hour makeup job by Jack Pierce. The previous two entries, Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein, were big hits. In this installment, Basil Rathbone portrays the son of the famed doctor, and Bela Lugosi is Ygor, the demented hunchback. This poster presents a significant opportunity to acquire an incredible piece of monster film history! There are scattered pinholes in the corners, and some separation in the lower horizontal fold. Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
