    Captain Blood (Warner Brothers, R-1948). Italian 2 - Folio (39" X 55").
    One of Errol Flynn's earliest films, this high flying adventure is also one of his best. A near perfect film with expert direction by Michael Curtiz, a stellar cast including Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, and Lionel Atwill, and impressive battle action, this classic was nominated for four Academy Awards. The sweeping score was written by the eminent Erich Wolfgang Korngold. Based on the novel by Rafael Sabatini, the film, set in 17th century England, centers around Dr. Peter Blood (Flynn) who is sold into slavery, helps his fellow abused prisoners escape, falls for the lovely Arabella (de Havilland), and lives the adventurous life of a pirate. With the outstanding artwork by Luigi Marinatti, this Italian poster is one of the most beautiful from any of Flynn's swashbuckler classics. The poster was missing 6" from the top, and had missing paper at the top and bottom of the left edge, tears in the left and right borders, and pinholes in the corners, and chips in the lower left corner. The professional restoration work on this beauty has been expertly handled, with the areas of missing paper unnoticeable until closely examined with a light source. A glorious early image of Flynn, this rarely seen gem deserves a high place in any classic film poster collection. Good/Very Good on Linen.
