    Description

    The Raven (Universal, 1935). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D.
    One of the first films to pair horror icons Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi, this classic chiller tells the story of a brilliant, but unstable neurosurgeon (Lugosi) who falls in love with one of his patients, and recruits a wanted criminal (Karloff) to kidnap her for him. While most of the Universal Horror films from this period were creepy and atmospheric, this film is genuinely frightening! Both Karloff and Lugosi were at the peak of their powers in 1935, and the result is a brilliant collaboration, one that would rarely be repeated with such incredible results. Prior to restoration the poster had approximately .25" trimmed around the border and two 2" crossfold tears in Karloff's mouth, some light chipping and smaller crossfold tears along the horizontal and vertical fold lines with a bit larger chipping along the lower horizontal fold line. There was a larger tear by the candle in the lower right corner and some color touch to the title, lower credits, and background towards the bottom of the poster. All of these defects have been restored so that the poster now displays beautifully, and remember, this is one of only two known copies of this Universal Horror classic! Very Good/Fine on Linen.
