NEWSFLASH! FRANKENSTEIN POSTER SELLS FOR OVER A QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS
The 14" x 36" movie poster insert for the 1931 FRANKENSTEIN sold yesterday for well over twice as much as forecast. The Heritage Auctions event was a milestone in that an insert for this movie is extremely rare to show up for sale or in any manner.
When the gavel dropped, the anonymous phone bidder won the item but will have to pay the $262,900.00 price tag. There were over 8,500 page views for this auction lot, and only 8 bidders vied for the prize. A monstrously momentous occasion!
