SON OF FRANKENSTEIN Original 1939 Lobby Card, 11x14, C8.5 Very Fine/Near Mint
This is the Original (1sh) 1939 Lobby Card SON OF FRANKENSTEIN. It was used by Universal to promote this movie when it was released in 1939. It is not a reprint nor a reproduction. Boris Karloff, Basil Rathbone, Bela Lugosi, Lionel Atwill, Josephine Hutchinson, Donnie Dunagan , Emma Dunn, Edgar Norton, Perry Ivins, Lawrence Grant, Lionel Belmore, Michael Mark, Caroline Frances Cooke, Gustav von Seyffertitz, Lorimer Johnston, Ward Bond, and Dwight Frye. It was directed by Rowland V. This restored movie Lobby Card measures 11" x 14". It is on medium stock paper. It comes with an unattached stiff cardboard backing. This original movie Lobby Card is graded C8.5 Very Fine to Near Mint. Original movie Lobby Cards are graded as follows from the top down: C10 (Mint), C9 (Near Mint), C8 (Very Fine), C7 (Fine/Very Fine), C6 (Fine or Very Good), C5 (Good to Very Good), C4 (Good), etc. Prior to restoration, this Lobby Card was graded C5 Good to Very Good. The restoration restored the Title - SON OF FRANKENSTEIN -, the borders, and several places about an inch or so into the image. If you look real close at some of the photos, you may see some of this restoration, but even under close inspection and bright light it is hard to see (one example look at the top left for a very faint restoration line, that line being between what was restored and what was not restored). The Lobby Card now presents beautifully. But I wanted to make sure that if there were any flaws or issues, like the gloss of the CREATURE's pants, then I wanted to (try to) capture that issue. We believe that the original 1939 Lobby Card SON OF FRANKENSTEIN has tremendous investment value.
