Horror ensemble—including Dracula’s elusive Van Helsing

Superb collection of four horror and suspense items, including: a crisp fountain pen signature from Universal's beloved horror character actor, "Till later then—Edward Van Sloan," on an off-white 3 x 1.5 card; a fountain pen signature from the evil Professor Moriarty, "Happy days! George Zucco," on an off-white 3 x 1.5 slip; a matte-finish 4.25 x 6.25 portrait of The Son of Kong actress, signed and inscribed, "For Jenny L. Bothe, Yours ever so sincerely, Helen Mack"; and a matte-finish 7 x 9 Elmer Fryer portrait of Dracula actor David Manners, signed and inscribed, "To Johnny Kotman, Sincerely, David Manners, 4-2-32." All four are nicely matted and framed, ranging in size from 9 x 11 to 13 x 15. In overall fine condition, with trimmed edges, minor surface loss, and mild show-through from print on reverse to the Zucco. A truly exceptional assemblage of Hollywood horror icons, highlighted by the ever-evasive Van Sloan, whose resume boasts three of the genre's most treasured films—Frankenstein, The Mummy, and Dracula. The James Collings Collection. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
