DescriptionThe Bride of Frankenstein (Universal, 1935). Fine/Very Fine. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
Considered by many to be the high point of the Golden Age of Universal Horror, this movie, directed by James Whale, is one of the rare instances in which a sequel surpasses its original. The impressive cast from the first film, including Boris Karloff as the Monster and Colin Clive as his Creator, are joined by Valerie Hobson as Elizabeth, O. P. Heggie as the blind hermit, Elsa Lanchester as the Monster's Mate, and the incomparable Ernest Thesiger as the mysterious and intriguing Dr. Praetorius. A landmark film, paper from this picture is some of the most desirable in the entire hobby. This lovely card spotlights when the Bride, surrounded by Drs. Praetorius and Frankenstein, comes to life, the most anticipated moment in the picture and still remains a pivotal scene in cinematic history to this day. Professional restoration has corrected small tears, pinholes, soft surface wear, as well as a few minor chips in the borders. There was some staining which is still slightly visible. The borders have been airbrushed and there is light post-restoration edge wear. Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
