    Description

    Captain Blood (Warner Brothers, 1935). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14") Alex Raymond Artwork.
    Based on the novel by Rafael Sabatini, this movie was a major gamble for Warner Brothers, as it lacked any notable stars. Robert Donat was originally cast as Peter Blood, but when he failed to show up for filming, the role was offered to Brian Aherne, who also turned it down. Desperate for a leading man, the studio took a chance on then-unknown Australian actor Errol Flynn, a risk that paid off handsomely, as both Flynn and his co-star Olivia DeHavilland became box-office superstars after the release of this picture. This fantastic title card features art by famed illustrator Alex Raymond, best known as the artist of the Flash Gordon newspaper strip, which set a new benchmark for comic artwork and is revered to this day. This title card shows corner bumps, light horizontal creases, and pinholes in the borders. There is a minor tear at the top border, and the card has some staining and smudging that is mainly in the borders. Fine/Vey Fine.
