Bride of Frankenstein Awaits High Bidder Mate in Beverly Hills

The combination of rarity, quality and artistry could all merge to create a world record price at public auction when the only known The Bride of Frankenstein (Universal, 1935) teaser one sheet Style E movie poster, from the renowned Collection of Todd Feiertag, comes up for auction as part of Heritage Auction Galleries Beverly Hills Signature Movie Poster Auction, Nov. 12.  It is estimated to fetch more than $700,000.

Heritage previously sold a poster that is tied for the second highest price realized for a movie poster, a Style B one sheet from The Black Cat, for $334,600 in November 2009, which ranks behind the auction sale of The Mummy, in March 1997, for $453,500, at a different auction house. The present poster comes from the same collection as The Mummy and The Black Cat, that of Todd Feiertag, who for nearly 50 years has amassed probably the single greatest collection of vintage horror posters in the World and who has decided that the time has come to bring another one of his most treasured posters to the market.
