Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein Vintage Movie Poster
"Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein", 1948
Original Vintage Movie Poster One Sheet (27x41")
Starring Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, Glenn Strange,
Bela Lugosi and the Wolfman Lon Chaney Jr.
Amazing Vintage One Sheet for this most popular Abbott & Costello Horror/Comedy classic. Excellent condition and professionally linen backed.
It was over 30 years ago when that vintage
"Abbott & Costello Meet Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde"
movie poster caught my eye at an auction, and I was hooked forever. Sure, I have loved Abbott & Costello movies ever since I was in grade school. No one could bridge comedy and horror like Abbott & Costello.. But it was the striking artwork on that poster that stopped me in my tracks. The colorful large images of Bud and Lou, the Karloff Monster chasing them, the exciting headlines.
It was a trip back in time. It was pure magic!
But, since that first unforgettable experience in 1980, there has been a movie poster I have searched for but have never been able to acquire. That is, until now!. My own personal “holy grail”, the most sought after A&C poster of them all. Of course I am referring to the original vintage one sheet movie poster for
“Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein”
. The only movie to ever include all Three of the main monsters, i.e. Frankenstein, Dracula and the Wolfman, plus the Invisible Man. It is often the pinnacle of most serious movie poster collections.
Excellent condition and has been professionally linen backed. Other then minor touch up to fold lines, no restoration as is the case with almost every one of these posters have ever seen at auction. About 15 years ago a collector contacted us and adamantly pronounced he would pay far more for this poster than we are selling today. So if you are still out there ??
An incredible piece of Hollywood history.
So WHY am I not keeping this in my own collection? If this disappears from the site, you’ll have the answer.
Cvtreasures stamp NOT on original poster
Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Universal International, 1948). One Sheet (27" X 41").
A gathering of Universal's biggest stars, from Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, to Frankenstein's Monster (Glenn Strange), Dracula (Bela Lugosi), and the Wolfman (Lon Chaney Jr.), with the Invisible Man (Vincent Price) thrown in at the end for good measure, this film marked the end of the Golden Age of Horror. It's a send off fit for the best, with Bud and Lou at their finest in this screwball comedy, which became the studio's second-highest grossing film of the year. It also marked a brief resurgence in the career of Bela Lugosi, the last great role he would play before his tragic decline. Posters from all the Abbott and Costello films are highly desirable, but this one is perhaps the most fondly remembered and highly regarded of the duo's many classic comedies
