Screen Used?

This Wolf Man doll recently went up on auction as the stunt doll used in the finale of "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein".  
I don't think this is authentic as the shot in question looks nothing like this doll at all.
But if it is real, that would be awfully neat!

Dracula Bust

This vintage Dracula bust was on ebay recently.  I believe it's from the 1970s.  I would really love to have this in my collection!
