Rarest movie poster in the world for sale (Yes, it’s Frankenstein)

Derzeit steht das seltenste Poster der Welt in einer Auktion zum Verkauf und mich als Frankenstein-Fanboy freut es tierisch, dass es sich dabei um ein Teaser-Poster zur Braut handelt. Wenn mir jemand $700,000 Dollar schenken möchte, kann er gerne meinen nicht vorhandenen Flattr-Button klicken. She’s alive!

It’s a teaser poster for John Whale’s 1935 horror masterpiece The Bride of Frankenstein. Three one-sheet designs were created to promote the movie in theaters. This poster is the most dramatic of the three, with its blood red wash and Boris Karloff’s iconic monster shackled in a chair demanding a mate. It’s also the only one that was released as an advance teaser to get theater audiences excited — I daresay titillated — before the movie premiered.

The estimated sale price of this one poster is $700,000. The current record-holder for most costly movie poster is from another horror classic, The Mummy. It sold in March 1997 for $453,500. So it’s Karloff versus Karloff, and it looks like neckbolts Karloff is set to give natronwrapped Karloff a sound spanking.
