Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man [Wolfman]

N.p. N.p., Circa 1943. Vintage reference publicity photograph of Lon Chaney Jr. and Bela Lugosi in battle as the wolf man and Frankenstein, respectively, and Ilona Massey as the frightened, helpless damsel, from the 1943 film.

The first ensemble film from the Universal Studios to combine characters from different horror series. A sequel to both the 1941 classic "The Wolf Man," directed by George Waggner, and the 1942 Frankenstein sequel (the fourth in the series), "The Ghost of Frankenstein," directed by Erle C. Kenton.

Lugosi's only portrayal of the Frankenstein monster, originally shot featuring an articulate monster who was blind and deaf, explaining the outstretched arms and lumbering gait, unfortunately, both plot elements were cut and left unexplained, leaving Lugosi's performance to become the subject of ridicule.

The resurrected wolf man, Larry Talbot, enlists the aid of mad scientist to end his curse, who has plans of his own, to revive Frankenstein's frozen monster.

8 x 10.25 inches. Some edgewear and light creasing in far corners, else Near Fine.
