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


Let's just get to the point!  This is arguably one of the BEST Dracula lobby cards 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 moving in on his sleeping prey (Hellen Chandler) 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 one of the best Dracula lobby cards we have ever seen surface.   

There is probably no more dramatic and spine chilling classic horror image then Dracula (Bela Lugosi) moving in on his sleeping prey like this breathtaking close-up.  Imagine how crowds reacted back in 1931, the beginning of talkie movies and decades before the public would be desensitized with grotesque morbidity like graphic violence and special effects. 

Excellent condition with minor restoration to the borders.

Note:   Just to give you an idea of the immense popularity and skyrocketing value of a top tier horror masterpiece like "Dracula",  a 1931 "Dracula" Title Card sold at auction in July 2019 for $114,000 and a regular scene lobby card sold for $102,000.  A "Dracula" one sheet sold at auction in November 2017 for $525,800.   Making this fantastic 1938 CHOICE lobby card a remarkable opportunity and investment!

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.
