'Frankenstein' Original Vintage Movie Poster, Belgian, 1950s

$2,292.89

About

A spine chilling Belgian poster for a 1950s re-release of the Classic 1931 Universal horror 'Frankenstein,' the most iconic of the many film adaptations of Mary Shelley's chilling Gothic novel of the same name, largely due to Boris Karloff's definitive portrayal of the creature, which cemented the image of Frankenstein’s monster in our collective consciousness. Rather oddly, the artist Bos erroneously depicted Glenn Strange (who played the role in the 1940s) as the looming monster rather than Karloff. The clashing garish colours and grisly scene have a strikingly nightmarish impact, making this hair-raisingly scarce poster a magnificent alternative to the exceptionally rare examples from the original 1931 release, which change hands for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
