Original Vintage Classic Horror Sci Fi Film Theater Movie Posters Memorabilia For Sale
"Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein", 1948

Original Vintage Half Sheet (22x28") Movie Poster
Also Starring Bela Lugosi - Lon Chaney - Glenn Strange as the Monsters


Well, HERE IT IS!! The #1 most sought after Abbott & Costello title and one of the most popular Vintage Universal Horror Classic movie posters. This is one of the most requested movie posters we get from customers. 

For the first time in over ten years we have acquired an ORIGINAL "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein" Half Sheet  (22x28").     The stunning half sheet with spectacular artwork of the three iconic monsters and Bud and Lou.   And one of my personal favorites (the BEST poster create for A&C Meet Frank IMO).  
Having collected Abbott & Costello since 1980 (my very first vintage movie poster acquisition was "Abbott & Costello Meet Dr Jekyl & Mr Hyde" one sheet), I can say with credibility, THIS IS the one to own!    Especially since it RARELY appears on the market. 

Excellent condition.  Completely UN-Restored !   Has a small chip off lower right corner border tip that doesn't affect any of the poster or  the NSS number.  Has light fold lines as ALL half sheets were folded by the studios.   
However, unlike the other two we have owned in the past 39 years, this one has light fold lines NOT the heavy, deep creased lines the others had. Also, it doesn't have the tears , stains and other handling wear and damage the others had.  Just a tiny fold separation left side of horizontal fold and a few pinholes on corner borders. 
The poster has been UNFolded for many years  (which is why fold are light and not deep and noticeable as most other half sheets). , hence it will be shipped in a large unfolded flat.   Colors are bright and gorgeous (NOT faded)  as seen in the enlargeable images above and below.   Artwork is spectacular!

 The last one of these to sell at auction was in July 2018. That half sheet required a good amount of restoration and paper back mounted. And it sold for $3720.    This one we are offering is 100% Original UN-Restored condition!

What else needs to be said about one of the greatest Universal Horror classics that brought together Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney in their immortal roles as "Dracula" and the "Wolfman". And, Glenn Strange as "Frankenstein". As a matter of fact, it was the ONLY movie to ever bring the three most famous monsters together. 

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Universal International, 1948). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
By 1948, it was apparent that the Universal horror franchise was running out of steam, so the studio sent its iconic creatures out in high style with this comedy monster mash, largely considered the end of the Golden Age of Horror. All the great bogeymen of yesteryear are here: Dracula, the Wolfman, Frankenstein, and even, briefly, the Invisible Man, all pitted against the hapless duo of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. The result is movie magic, especially the performance of Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula, seen by many as his last great role before sliding into the tragic final phase of his life.

A brilliant move on the studio's part was to cast their beloved monsters with their popular comedians in this hilarious spoof! Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, Glenn Strange, and the voice of Vincent Price were the foils for the famous duo.

As part of the Universal Horror series, paper from this picture is extremely desirable.
