    Description

    The Wolf Man (Universal, 1941). Insert (14" X 36"). Lon Chaney, Jr. was the star of what has become one of Universal Studios' greatest horror films. By the time this film was released at the beginning of WWII, the studio was trying to bring life back to the franchise that kept them solvent through the Depression: the monster movie. But they needed a new character. They made a werewolf film some five years prior in "Werewolf of London," but now revisited that character with a more horrific story. Offered in this lot is, what most agree, the best poster from this classic film. The insert shown has been professionally restored to its total and original glory. The poster was never folded and is, as far as we know, the only copy left unfolded. The border, along with a 1/2" of the image, on the right side were trimmed, as well as minute amounts of the top and bottom borders. The fine restoration work makes this very difficult to detect, except upon the closest inspection. There is only a handful of copies known for this famous poster. Very Good on Paper.
