Description

    The Ghost of Frankenstein (Universal, 1942). Insert (14" X 36").
    Always a popular title among horror fans, this classic marks Lon Chaney Jr's first and only turn as Frankenstein's creation, taking on the creature's makeup as Boris Karloff moved on to less physically demanding roles. Despite receiving fourth billing in the film's advertisements under the names of Cedric Hardwicke, Ralph Bellamy, and Lionel Atwill, the real star of the show and biggest audience draw was Bela Lugosi's creepy reprisal of the demented lab assistant, Ygor, from this series' 1939 installment, Son of Frankenstein. The last film to feature Frankenstein's famous creation as the sole supernatural villain in any Universal horror flick, this picture marks the changeover to the studio's new monster mashup format seen in later titles such as Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, House of Frankenstein, and House of Dracula. Featuring a great image with eerily tinted close-ups of the cast, especially Chaney and Lugosi, this insert displays beautifully after receiving touchup to the folds, some scratches in the credit area, and a horizontal crease in the lower background. The poster's borders and thin strips of the left and right background have been replaced, but the image itself is wonderfully intact with few flaws. From the Collection of Lynn Naron. Fine on Paper.
