Yes, Todd Feiertag's copy is again up on ebay for boku bucks, but whenever his un-backed and un-restored copy of the US OS for The Mummy makes an appearance, I'm there!  bed1

Simply magnificent!  notworthy.gif

Love the art of Karoly Grosz.
He did most of the best Universal Monster movie posters.
Being his posters are rarely signed, I'd love to find some sort of definitive listing of his works.

Here's a few others he did, but there is so little info available.

I've recently read that Grosz also did this Dracula?



Maybe Crowzilla Sean has more insight?

Seems to make some sense, if Grosz was the Universal horror department's go-to poster artist.

It really is too bad that more US posters went unsigned. I guess staff artists had no place Id'ing their work, and were hired to simply produce the product.

The terrific artists from back then sure need to be recognized more fully. But I'm thinking many poster artists from that golden age will never be identified.  :'(

I believe Grosz is also credited with the art on the US OS for The Old Dark House (1932)  bed1

one thing i've learned over the years is that stone litho maniac ma500969 always gets what he wants, so while this one's not in the books just yet, it might as well be.  Great looking poster.

Incredible, Jeff!  I think it's easy to see how artists like Graham Ingels and Berni Wrightson were influenced by this type of art/content (even though they may not have seen this exact poster design).  This Belgian poster is beautiful in its art and, to me, powerful for the time and life of its story.  Transcends just a movie poster from where I sit.   Okie

I don't know who these 2 artists are, Okie, but I'll look them up. Im curious about their styles and subject matter, since you mentioned them.

And it's too bad that the FREAKS poster isnt signed. It would be great to know who did this amazing looking piece, for sure.

I think you probably will know their work, Jeff.  See below...

Graham Ingels: one of the great EC Comics artists, whose iconic drawing of the Ghoulunatic "Old Witch" host, spooked many a youth in the 1950s.

Berni Wrightson:  Co-creator and original artist on Swamp Thing.  Also, Berni illustrated an immensely popular version of Frankenstein.

Thanks for the added info, Okie. I'll be sure to look them up and check out their work, too.
