    Description

    Glenn Strange Signed Universal Card. After playing the heavy in countess cowboy movies, Glenn Strange made the transition to horror movie icon with his performances as the Frankenstein Monster in House of Frankenstein, House of Dracula, and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. This autograph reads "To Debbie Glenn Strange Sam Gunsmoke" with Strange having added the the name of the bartender role he played for many years on the long-running TV Western. Two bonuses: Strange wrote the autograph on a 3.5" x 9" flyer for the Universal Studios tour (Universal, of course, was the studio that produced the Frankenstein melodramas), and the flyer is also signed "To Debbie and David from Frankenstein" -- presumably the studio employee who dressed up as the Monster on the Universal tour. (among the pictures inside the flyer, in fact, is one of the Monster signing autographs.) The flyer bears the copyright of 1972 (Strange died September 20, 1973). There is minor creasing on the flyer, and some light staining with a spot on the last letters of "Gunsmoke," otherwise it is in overall Very Fine condition. The signature of this former "Monster" is very desirable, especially in this uniquely apropos form. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
