    Description

    Werewolf of London (Universal, 1935). Insert (14" X 36").
    Henry Hull stars as the man who becomes a werewolf in this classic horror film from Universal. The original makeup for the werewolf was deemed too gruesome to use but later showed up in Lon Chaney Jr.'s rendition of the Wolf Man. Hull plays a scientist who journeys to Tibet in search of a rare flower. There he is bitten by a werewolf (Warner Oland) and takes on the lycanthropic curse. When he returns to London, his transformation occurs and he goes on a killing spree until he's finally brought down by Scotland Yard. Valerie Hobson plays his wife, fresh from being the bride of Dr. Frankenstein! The horrific werewolf appears twice on this appropriately eerie insert poster. Unrestored, it has pinholes in the corners, small tears in the left and right borders, minor corner bends with a smudge in the bottom right corner, and a tear with slight surface paper loss in the top left corner. There is tape on the reverse borders and a small surface abrasion on Lester Matthews' suit coat. Posters from this horror classic seldom surface, and this is a wonderful example. Rolled, Fine+.
