A true movie buff and vintage movie poster collector would find it hard to resist the temptation of placing a bid on the many rare and priceless movie posters that will be up for sale at the upcoming Heritage Auction Galleries Beverly Hills Signature Movie Poster Auction. One of the highlights and sure to be record setting sales of this upcoming auction is definitely The Bride of Frankenstein (Universal, 1935) teaser one sheet Style E movie poster. Said to be the only known poster of the famed movie, it is being offered for sale by Todd Feierta who is said to have the single greatest collection of vintage horror posters in the world. With a pre-sale estimate of $700,000 plus there is no doubt that this Horror poster will set a new world record.
Of the three one sheet designs originally produced for in-theatre promotion for The Bride of Frankenstein, this only known poster is said to boast of the most powerful image of all with brilliant cherry red printing and the shocking image of The Monster, shackled and chained to a heavy chair with rays of energy bursting behind. Completing the gruesome picture is the tagline ‘I DEMAND A MATE,’and a message provoking the interest of the movie goers’- ‘WHO will be THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN’ and ‘WHO will dare?’
A hard to resist offering for vintage movie poster collectors, wonder who will be lucky enough to call it his/her own. The poster is currently on display at Heritage Auctions Beverly Hills, 9478 West Olympic Boulevard, and can be seen on a walk-in basis.
