Dracula original vintage lobby card movie poster Bela Lugosi '38

$4,350.00

Dracula, 1931
Original Vintage Horror Lobby Card Movie Poster 
Starring Bela Lugosi


Let's just get to the point!  This is arguably the BEST Dracula lobby card in existence.   Not even any of the 1931 lobby cards (which typically sell for $10,000+ Each when they rarely do surface  on the market) , compares to this incredible image of the Count spreading his "Wings" in the very first Dracula re-release from 1938.  .And if that''s not enough , look at the striking and menacing border image of Lugosi in the lower right...   Simply astonishing to say the least.  And by far the best Dracula lobby card we have ever seen for sale.   
{Note: we have two other lobby cards from this 1938 re-release).  Excellent condition with minor expected handling wear... .  

Just look at the enlargeable image above , what else needs to be said?

Dracula (Universal, R-1938). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
In 1930, Universal was a struggling studio, desperate for a hit. Taking a chance on an adaptation of a popular Broadway play, Carl Laemmle Jr. acquired the film rights to Bram Stoker's immortal novel about an aristocratic vampire, and brought Dracula to the silver screen in 1931. Not only was the film a sensation, but it made an overnight superstar of Bela Lugosi and ushered in the Golden Age of Universal Horror. This great scene featuring Hellen Chandler and Bela Lugosi shows one pinhole in the left border, very soft surface scuffs in the lower image area, mild smudging in the borders, small stains in the upper and left borders, bends in the right corners, a vertical crease through the "R" of "Dracula,". Quite extraordinary condition for this 80 year old lobby card!  Fine/Very Fine.
