    Description

    The Most Dangerous Game (RKO, 1932). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    If there's a poster in the November Signature Auction that comes with well deserved bragging rights, this is it -- a half sheet from RKO's 1932 horror classic The Most Dangerous Game -- a poster that was more or less a phantom up until just a few years ago. Shipwrecked on a remote island, a group of innocent survivors are imprisoned and forced to become human prey by a deranged big-game hunter, tired of "ordinary" prey. Based on Richard Connell's famous story, the film was shot on the same sets and produced by the same people (Willis O'Brien and Ernest B. Schoedsack) as 1933's King Kong. Picturing the glowering, evil Count Zaroff (Leslie Banks), and his two panicked victims, Fay Wray and Joel McCrea, this poster represents the best of horror genre imagery. Prior to restoration, the borders had been trimmed to the edges of the image area. There was a chip in the left border into the hand of McCrea, a vertical razor cut from the top border to the bottom border, a small punch and tear on the left side, faint staining in the bottom image area, and small surface creases. Rolled, Fine.
