This Extremely Rare ‘Frankenstein’ 1931 Poster Just Went Up for Auction

One of only seven known to exist, an extremely rare Frankenstein 1931 poster is now up for grabs from Heritage Auctions, expected to exceed $150,000 when all is said and done.

At this time, the current high bid is already at $77,500!

The team explains, “Frankenstein was hiding in a Pennsylvania attic all along. This 1931 Style A movie poster designed by the legendary Universal Pictures art director Karoly Grosz, that is, not the man nor the monster. There are only seven known surviving examples of this Frankenstein, and until this year, it was tucked away in the perpetual night beneath the eaves of a home in The Keystone State. And now it comes out to roar once more at Heritage Auctions.

“Indeed, this Frankenstein one-sheet, folded and unrestored but in near-mint condition nearly a century later, is a centerpiece of the auction house’s April 29-30 Movie Posters Signature® Auction. It is being offered alongside other coveted rarities that seldom see the light of day, including 116 horror and science-fiction offerings from the collection of Modern Props, once described by the Los Angeles Times as a “Hollywood institution.”

“Heritage has only offered this Frankenstein poster twice in its history and only once in near-mint condition – 19 years ago, when the monster scared up a record-setting price of $189,750. Its 2004 price tag was befitting its status as one of the “great posters from the Golden Age of the silver screen,” the subtitle of the landmark 1988 book Reel Art in which it’s prominently featured.”

“It’s a major event in the field when previously unknown Holy Grails like the Frankenstein Style A come to light,” says Zach Pogemiller, Associate Director of Movie Posters. “A discovery like this presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to private and institutional collectors alike and enriches our worldwide cinema culture. It’s an honor and a privilege for Heritage to bring these items salvaged from obscurity to their proper place in the public spotlight.”

Other classic posters up for grabs as part of the April auction include The Ghost of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, The Adventures of Robin Hood, and The Wizard of Oz.
