    Donnie Dunagan's "Son of Frankenstein" Scrapbook Pages. This is a once-in-a-lifetime treasure-trove for Golden Age horror fans! Here are 14 11"x 14" scrapbook pages (28 sides) devoted to Universal's 1939 classic terror epic Son of Frankenstein, from the collection of Donnie Dunagan, who, as a four-year old, played the Monster's little friend, Peter von Frankenstein. The variety of material is fascinating - ads for the film's opening in Los Angeles and Memphis, announcements of Dunagan's casting from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, reviews, press stories and newspaper photos from from all over the country, a trade paper ad listing the film's "hold-over" engagements, the cover from the Feb. 28, 1939 Look magazine with a color shot of Dunagan (altered so he's wearing a gas mask!)and an inside page devoted to the film, "teaser" ads - all from the collection of the child actor who played so memorably in Universal's most lavish Frankenstein melodrama. The pages offer great images of Basil Rathbone's Dr. Frankenstein, , Boris Karloff's Monster, Bela Lugosi's Ygor, Lionel Atwill's Inspector Krogh and Josephine Hutchinson's Elsa. A specially unique item is a two-page version of the film in color comic book form (mainly stills from the film "colorized"). The borders of the nearly 70-year old pages are brittle and tattered, but the clippings are intact and the wealth of material amazing - Very Fine condition. A chance to own a true piece of Universal Frankenstein history comes all-too-rarely, and these pages - from the personal collection of a major featured player in one of Hollywood's most beloved horror shows - establishes this lot as a truly wonderful find. From the Donnie Dunagan Archive.
