To celebrate my 500th post, could you please help me find Lon Chaney's head?! Anyone have a lead on the top sheet to this original Son of Dracula three sheet? I'd even like the top sheet that was used in the part poster/part painting advertising that sold at Bonhams awhile back.  Is it really that bad to connect a vampire back with its head?!  Thanks in advance for any help!  Okie

Good luck, Okie.

Lon's floating head has to be out there, somewhere.

Looks like a slow news day here on ol' APF.  So, I'll drop some news just to say the Son of Dracula is getting his head back in 2020!  The wheels are already in motion.  Stay tuned later in February for pictures!  Okie

Thanks for the congrats, guys!  Man, I'm looking forward to seeing the Son of Dracula three sheet restored next month.  I also have hope for your search, iojabba!  Okie

Appreciate it. I have little hope but it makes for something to hunt for. Someone on here suggested that I look for a complete poster in lesser condition to complete it, which is probably more likely. but seeing how its not a common poster to begin with.... I have my doubts. Anyway, I have the rest of my life to search.

Okie did you actually find the piece or are you having it recreated?

Okie's revival of this thread has inspired me to plead for someone to find (or release from their sweaty grasp!) the bottom section for my 1959 - Mummy three sheet

Hi Chris,

Yes, found most of the top piece.  Just some background needs restoration.

Any one have Steve McQueen's head?

Tempting to pick up cheap on the off chance that you could someday find a complete one with the bottom half in bad condition.

It looks like this same copy sold for $1,792 so I'm guessing this one will still go for a pretty penny.
