The Crestwood House Movie Monsters Series

I used to go to the library as a kid and take out any number of these old Crestwood House books. I still have a few of the Orange covered Monster ones still around. Know I have the Godzilla one on the shelf - think hurricane Sandy may have claimed a few I had stored in some crates at the in-laws.


The Bride of Frankenstein (Universal Weekly, March 2, 1935). Magazine

After Universal’s incredible success in 1931 with Frankenstein, based on Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s original novel “Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus,” the sequel Bride of Frankenstein was very much anticipated, and the ad and poster campaign by Universal was immense. Colin Clive and Boris Karloff recreate their earlier roles, and Elsa Lanchester is the woman who dared take on the horrifying role of the monster’s bride. Inside this magazine is a never before seen, black and white full page ad for James Whale’s masterpiece. The artwork which features an extremely glamorous Lanchester and a very detailed image of her groom, is by the artist Kulz.
