Barton monster horror spoof comedy ("It's a grand New idea for FUN!"; the eighth Universal Frankenstein movie, and this time they added their #1 comedy team to both liven up the series, and to inject comedy; many people fondly remember this as their favorite of the 1940s Frankenstein movies!; "JEEPERS! The CREEPERS are after BUD and LOU!"; "The LAUGHS are MONSTERous! Bud and Lou are in a stew when they tangle with the TITANS of TERROR!"; "The monsters of menace vs the masters of Mirth!") starring Bud Abbott, Lou Costello (Abbott and Costello), Lon Chaney Jr. ("The Wolf Man played by Lon Chaney"), Bela Lugosi (returning as Dracula after being long absent from the role; "Dracula played by Bela Lugosi"), Glenn Strange (in the title role, again playing the Frankenstein monster; "The Monster played by Glenn Strange"), Lenore Aubert, Jane Randolph, Frank Ferguson, and Vincent Price (in a cute cameo, as the voice of The Invisible Man at the end of the movie!)

Important Added Info: Note that we have provided an image of the front and back covers of this pressbook (if the back cover is not the poster page, we photographed the interior poster page), and of course, the winner of this auction will receive the entire single pressbook we are auctioning (plus any supplements or heralds described above)! Also note that this pressbook is complete and uncut! Given that theater owners received pressbooks partly in order to create their newspaper advertising, and quite frequently cut them up for that purpose, it is rare to find a pressbook that IS complete and uncut!

Condition: good, NO CUTS. The pressbook is complete and uncut. It was once folded across the middle but has been laying flat for a long time. The covers and some of the interior pages are completely separated at the spine. There are tears, tiny stains, and a small amount of tiny paper loss around the edges of the cover (see our images).
