been wanting this little binary gem collection for years - since 11:30 Sunday morning about 1976 (Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein)!
8x10 sepia toned silver bromide(?) double-weight matte finish personal portrait by Apeda Studios, NY, of Bela Lugosi 1928 (in between the stage play Dracula and the film). Inscribed "To Carmine" and inscribed/signed boldly in black fountain pen "sincerely Bela Lugosi". VF+ Condition with no major flaws. From Tom Kramer of Goldenageautographs.com
Below is a personal portrait - 11x14 double weight gelatin silver photograph with a matte/pearl finish showing a smiling and pensive Lugosi in the same years. Stamped twice on the reverse by Lugosi's agent Don Marlowe who apparently borrowed this from Lugosi in the 40's and kept it. Fine condition.
I would like to see the Lugosi's of others please? Post 'em if ya got 'em ;)
I wish! Congratulations on two absolutely beautiful pieces, Eric.
Thank you Mike, I can't believe I got them. It's like several Gleason's to me or something.
What are your thoughts about turning this discussion into one for members to post images of other Masters of Horror autographs in their collections as well? The best that I can do is Alfred Hitchcock.
Sure! It is a Halloween thread! To keep up the theme - "all welcome, all are welcome children" - Tangina ;)
For me, I would like to see how others frame Lugosi or team him with an item.
Nice Vincent Price...the man with the laugh that helped turn Thriller into a Halloween classic!
Beautiful additions to your collection, Eric! Congratulations! Sorry, I was having some issues with chat last night for some reason.
Knowing how much you like Gleason, you must be over the moon with these. I know I would be. Very nice indeed. And Happy Halloween 2019!!
Wow, two great additions to your collection. Congrats, Eric!
Thank you so very much Mark, from you... :D
And James - over the moon indeed! "Bang-Zoom!" - only I sent myself there! Can't believe I own these. I don't which is the more desirable yet!
