    Description

    Captain Blood (Warner Brothers, 1935). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Original paper for this film is already a scarce sight, and this especially elusive one sheet almost never surfaces for sale. Not only is Captain Blood considered to be one of the greatest swashbucklers ever made, but it is also the film that transformed Errol Flynn from an obscure Australian actor to a smash hit Hollywood sensation. He became the face of Warner Brothers' adventure films for the next decade, costarring in several with leading lady Olivia de Havilland. This film also has Lionel Atwill playing military officer and Port Royal governor Colonel Bishop, while Basil Rathbone once again shows off his formidable fencing prowess as the traitorous pirate Levasseur. This gorgeous poster, only sold once before at Heritage, has light edge and fold wear, slight fold separations with archival tape on the verso, and faint staining in the borders. There are some light spots of touchup in the folds and crossfolds with a few small splices. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
