Elsa Lanchester - Signed "Bride of Frankenstein" 10x8 Still Photo - Autograph. We are offering a 1970's 8x10 "Film Classics" still picturing Else Lanchester and Boris Karloff in the 1935 classic, "Bride of Frankenstein". Signed and inscribed in black marker. To Scott - With all good wishes - Elsa Lanchester. This is a double weight photo and is in very good shape with two very minor corner bumps.
Uneven toning to photo around Else's head and the upper part of the stone wall between her and Karloff. This was in the production of the still and adds a rather interesting effect to the image. Signed images as "The Bride" are getting rather difficult to find.
