    Description

    London After Midnight (MGM, 1927). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    London After Midnight was reconstructed more than ten years ago using more than 200 still photographs and a continuity script (coinciding with the film's 75th anniversary) and released to DVD. The film is considered to be one the "holy grails" of lost cinema. Starring Lon Chaney, the "Man of a Thousand Faces," and directed by Tod Browning, who is most known for directing Dracula (1931) and Freaks (1932), the film is based on a script by Browning and depicts Chaney as a vampire (though in makeup only). Now, for the first time in modern history, the stone litho original U.S. release one sheet can be seen! The film was released with two different one sheet posters, this one and the Rotogravure style, done in a sepia tone photographic process, which MGM did frequently during this period in time. This gorgeous poster is the only copy to have surfaced after 87 years that we are aware of and we believe it may be a very long time before it will ever be seen again. With only the most minimal wear and never used, the poster was folded into eighths and then folded again, making for a few more centerpoint separations. It remains in lovely condition and assuredly one of the most sought after posters of the twentieth century! Folded, Very Fine+.
