This vintage oversize publicity photo from the 1935 Universal horror classic, “The Bride of Frankenstein” has been autographed by star Elsa Lanchester.

Frankenstein’s First Movie Sequel

The first (and arguably best) sequel to 1931’s “Frankenstein”, starring Boris Karloff as the Monster, brought Lanchester fame as she played the dual role of Mary Shelley and “The Bride”.

Initially signed for a minor part in the movie, Lanchester captivated director James Whale. Her talent and unique screen presence won her the role, solidifying her place in horror film history.

The Bride’s unforgettable appearance was a collaborative effort. Lanchester’s striking look, featuring the iconic shock of hair and elaborate costume, added to the character’s mystique. The imagery of Elsa Lanchester as “The Bride of Frankenstein” became synonymous with gothic horror.

The Collectibility of “The Bride of Frankenstein”

Elsa Lanchester’s “The Bride of Frankenstein” is nearly as highly collected as is “Frankenstein”, with an original 1935 insert movie poster selling at auction for over $100,000 in 2010, and an original lobby card featuring Lanchester as the Bride fetching $19,0000.

Original studio portraits of Elsa Lanchester in costume as the Bride are also highly sought after, and autographed photos are among the most interesting.
