    Description

    The Body Snatcher (RKO, 1945). Six Sheet (81" X 81"). Robert Louis Stevenson's tale was inspired by the true story of the gruesome grave-robbers Burke and Hare. Legendary horror producer Val Lewton brought in director Robert Wise (The Day the Earth Stood Still) to adapt Stevenson's story for the screen. He then cast the two greatest horror stars of the cinema, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi, to add a chilling atmosphere to the production. This poster has fold line wear, creases, tears and areas of paper loss in the background of the graphics. The poster has been professionally restored, making these defects harder to detect. This rare large format six sheet is one of the best and scarcest posters for this classic horror thriller. Fine+ on Linen.
