‘Bride of Frankenstein’ Poster Expected to Fetch Record Bid

A teaser image for James Whale’s 1935 film is expected to sell for $700,000

This coming Friday, Heritage Auctions will be selling a teaser poster for James Whale's 1935 film "The Bride of Frankenstein" that is expected to sell for $700,000, making it the most expensive movie poster in history.

The current record is held by a poster for Fritz Lang's 1927 silent film "Metropolis," which sold for $690,000 in 2005.

The extremely rare red poster was designed by an unknown hand and is the only one of its kind.

"The Bride of Frankenstein" starred Boris Karloff as the famed monster, and Elsa Lanchester as the title character.
