    Description

    Son of Frankenstein (Universal, 1939). Uncut Pressbook (12 Pages) with Ad Supplement (8 Pages) (11.5" X 17.5").
    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. The pressbook offered here has a full-color cover which almost makes it a poster in its own right, and it shows spine and fold wear with slight fold separations, minor surface wear on the covers, and a small corner chip on page 3. All of the pages in the pressbook are loose, including the front and back covers, while the pages of the ad supplement are intact. Folded, Fine+.
