DescriptionCaptain Blood (Warner Brothers, 1935). Title Lobby Card and Lobby Cards (3) (11" X 14").
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 turned it down. Desperate for a leading man, the studio gambled 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 spectacular 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. The title card has two tears in the right border with paper tape on verso, slight left corner bends, and a faint stain in the bottom left border. The scene cards are also impressive with great images of the cast. They show one or more of the following: small corner bends, and very light water stains at the bottom right border. Whether you're a fan of Flynn, Raymond, swashbucklers, superb artwork, or very rare lobby cards, this is the lot you won't want to let slip away! Very Fine-.
