Westmore Original Wolfman Prototype Mask!

Check out this awesome original mask by Bud Westmore. This is coming up for auction soon. It's a prototype mask for Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein - here's the description...

This prototype wolf man mask comes directly from the Westmore estate. Crafted from foam rubber and unspecified animal hair, it was made circa the late 1940s, and is believed to be a prototype created for use in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948). (The presence of hook-and-eye closures on the back suggest it was intended for practical use.) Rejected by Universal, it was boxed and stored by Westmore, which explains the relatively fantastic condition that it is in some six decades later.
