"Dracula" - Bela Lugosi
Original Vintage Photo Still 1931
Dracula (Universal, 1931). Still (7" X 9"). Horror.
Vintage black and white, single weight, glossy still. Following Lon Chaney's sudden death, Carl Laemmle had to find a replacement to star in Dracula. The role finally went to Bela Lugosi, a Hungarian actor who had been portraying Bram Stoker's undead count on the stage. Lugosi made the role his own forever cementing his legacy as the screen's greatest King of the Undead! This image was used in the creation of the best lobby card in the original set and features Lugosi seducing the innocent Helen Chandler by feeding upon her blood.
Photo detail and contrast is stunning! I have never seen an original Dracula, Lugosi photo with such beautiful detail. One of the best Lugosi "Dracula" original photos you will ever see!
Excellent condition with some corner wear. Back has original Studio stamp promoting "Bela Lugosi in Dracula a Universal Release". Also some pencil notations on back of Dracula stars, an d a couple collector stamps.
Conway's Vintage stamp is NOT on orignal photo. Guaranteed Authentic original for life.
