Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly rare 8x10-inch glossy black and white restrike publicity portrait for The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942), posing as if she is being frightened by something invisible to the rest of us, boldly signed and inscribed, we believe for Blackie Seymour of the Pentagram Library and his wife, referred to as "J. and B.," in black fine-tip pen in the 1970s. In good condition, with a few minor handling dings. Best known for her portrayal of Gwen Conliffe in The Wolf Man (1941), opposite Lon Chaney, Jr., beautiful Chilean-born British scream queen Evelyn Ankers made many other key contributions to the horror and sci-fi genres, playing Norma Lind in Hold That Ghost (1941), Elsa Frankenstein in The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942), Beth Colman in Captive Wild Woman (1943), Claire Caldwell in Son of Dracula (1943), Isabel Lewis in The Mad Ghoul (1943), Ilona Carr in Weird Woman (1944), Beth Mason in Jungle Woman (1944), Julie Herrick in The Invisible Man’s Revenge (1944), and Maura Daniel in The Frozen Ghost (1945).
