    White Zombie (United Artists, 1932). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    Bela Lugosi, in this chilling film, gives one of his best performances as the aptly-named Murder Legendre, an inscrutable man who holds sway over the natives in his Haitian stronghold. When a wealthy man enlists Legendre's aid to gain the hand of a woman who has refused him, Legendre hatches a plan to kill the girl and resurrect her as a zombie. Poster collectors are aware of the high degree of difficulty involved in finding paper on this title; of all the horror movies from the 1930s, this is one of the hardest films from which to find anything. This mesmerizing and beautiful half sheet is one of two known copies, and is reportedly the better condition-wise of the two. The poster was folded and had very minimal fold wear. There was a chip out of the left center border which extended 1.5" into the purple background of Lugosi's shoulder. There was a small chip from the upper right corner within the border only. The beautiful archival restoration is impeccable, assuring that it will display magnificently for the life of the piece. As with all posters that Heritage auctions, we guarantee the authenticity of the material and this poster comes with a certification by the restoration specialist, Carol Tincup. Fine+ on Paper.
