|The picture shows a view of the (2) Unused 1958 Return of Dracula & The Flame Barrier Movie Ad Mat Molds. They are still attached. These ad mats are not dated but they are from 1958 when these two movies were made. These are molds in which lead is poured to create a thin metal negative image that is then mounted on a wooden block for printing. Advertising is no longer being made or printed like this.|
The ad mats are like miniature 3-D posters and would look nice framed, or you could still use them and make print blocks from them. The print block would have been used to print on movie pages in newspapers, in magazines, or in the movie theater programs. It is made of a thick compressed paper board. These admats have images of a pretty lady, Dracula, and an image of a man with a rifle. They are marked as follows:
THE MOST TERRIFYING NAME IN THE WORLD!
THE RETURN OF DRACULA
PLUS 2nd CHILLING HIT!
THE FIRST SATELLITE THAT RETURNED TO EARTH
... AND THE HELL IT BROUGHT WITH IT!
''THE FLAME BARRIER''
RELEASED THRU UA UNITED ARTISTS
(image of a man in a hat with a rifle)
The ad mats together as pictured measures about 4-3/4'' x 5-1/8''. They appear to be in near mint unused condition with the edge cut close on the left one as pictured. Below here, for reference, is a cast list from the two 1958 movies:
