We at Krasker Talks! sure have the Halloween spirit today. On that note, our very own evening supervisor Dave Perkins is sharing with us a little piece of spooky-fun film history¬† from his personal collection of film memorabilia: an original movie poster for Mel Brooks’ 1974 masterwork Young Frankenstein. Being a film historian, I flipped when I saw what amazing condition it is in. The colors are remarkably vibrant because it has been stored away from strong lighting. So let that be a lesson to all would-be collectors! Posters are like vampires. You gotta keep them out of the sun.

It’s alive! Krasker staffers lend a hand at Frankie’s photo shoot. That’s Dave at the top!
Here's a close-up. The movie was in black & white, but the poster is a Technicolor dream.
