    Autographed Still of Marilyn Harris, "Little Maria" of Frankenstein, Signed to Dwight Frye's Son. The fatal "flower game" between Boris Karloff's Monster and Marilyn Harris's Little Maria in Frankenstein (1931) is perhaps the most famous and certainly the most haunting episode on that all-time horror classic. This 8 x 10" still captures the legendary lakeside scene, and Marilyn Harris autographed the picture in the mid-1990s. Curiously, she signed the still to Dwight Frye - the son of the cult figure actor who played "Fritz," the hunchbacked dwarf who torments the Monster in Frankenstein (and pays for it disastrously). A mutual friend of Harris and Frye secured the autographed picture for him, but Frye, not a collector, politely declined the gift. Ms. Harris died in 1999, Mr. Frye in 2003, and this item survives as a truly unique and desirable Frankenstein curio, with connections to two of the film's vividly-remembered featured players. Excellent condition. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
