Dracula (1974) UK Quad Poster

Regular price £75.00 £0.00
Tax included.

An unfairly maligned version, and the first to add the long-lost love aspect which has been the template ever after, an addition by screenwriter Richard Matheson. With it's design reminiscent of Dali's self portrait, it remains one of the most powerful Dracula poster designs. A TV movie released theatrically in Europe, although slightly more bloody scenes were shot for this version.

I wouldn't swear that it is Palance pictured, rather than a stand-in. But it's a great example of how all the text was set by hand at this time. If you look at the PA of Palance and Pamela, you can see the fractional difference in kerning between the two.

Condition: VERY GOOD / FINE - uses a rare matt black ink effect

Cast: Jack Palance, Simon Ward, Nigel Davenport, Pamela Brown, Fiona Lewis, Virginia Wetherell, Sarah Douglas, Murray Brown (who appeared in Vampyres the same year)
