Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell Poster

Although this is a double-bill Quad poster, it was printed for the 1st release of the 1974 film, "Frankenstein & The Monster From Hell". Two Quads were available for the advertising campaign, both featuring the brilliant artwork of Bill Wiggins, the poster designed by Eddie Paul (see the alternate below, image courtesy of emovieposter.com). It may seem curious why cinemas were given these options & why the stand-alone full-sized "Frankenstein.." was not treated to a full colour print, as this is clearly far more visually appealing. The rationale appears to be that distributors Avco Embassy wanted to encourage bookers to take both films rather than just one, hence the colour inducement.

 

Both the solo & double-bill posters for this Frankensein film are collectable. Not only was this a Hammer film but it was the last real horror classic to be made by the Hammer studios. The colour double-bill version is far scarcer than the monochrome solo version. It is believed that the print run for the solo poster was  increased so that Hammer had supplies to pass on to satisfy demand from collectors (much as they did with the earlier "One Million Years BC/She" & "Dracula Has Risen From The Grave" Quads).

 

This poster has some old tape repairs to corners/rim etc leaving slight marking to the corners. These are pretty cosmetic issues & the poster still displays to excellent effect as shown.
