OTHER: Frankenstein 1931 - Original Poster



Simply put, One of the most valuable movie posters in the entire world is still alive and well. A Universal Pictures movie Frankenstein 1931 poster sold at Heritage Auctions in 2015. This poster is a 6 foot tall masterpiece, and it sold for $358,500.


According to Heritage, the poster was found by Steve Wilkin, who found it in a boarded-up projection booth at the Long Island theater (where he worked as a teenager) This poster is an amazing piece of not just horror history, but Universal’s history.


These movies are what got that brand started. When you think of the great Universal classics, you think of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy, etc. This is a piece that can never be replaced, period.
