1942 Night Monster Insert Movie Poster

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $533

Insert (14 x 36 inches) movie poster for the 1942 Universal release Night Monster, starring Bela Lugosi and Lionel Atwill. The poster features wonderful photographic images of the stars, as well as an illustration of an ambiguous shadowy creature at the top. All original posters from this film are exceedingly rare. This is the only Night Monster insert we have seen in online auction records and outside of lobby cards and window cards, we cannot recall having seen any other original posters, including one sheets. Nearly all of the paper found for this film today is from the Realart rerelease of the title in 1949. Both Lugosi and Atwill are horror legends and were perfectly cast in this film about murder and insanity at an old mansion. The poster displays a standard horizontal center fold (as issued) and light toning in the border areas, as well as a few very small, light stains. Minor tears along the border area are evident, as are a few light surface wrinkles. A very faint stamp mark (so light that the word is illegible) appears in the upper left corner. The colors remain bold and vibrant. It should be noted that all of the flaws mentioned are extremely unobtrusive and do not detract in the least from the poster's Excellent overall appearance. This is an outstanding example of this rarely seen insert dating from the golden age of Universal horror. Framed to total dimensions of 16.25 x 38.25 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000.
