    Description

    Dr. Syn (Gaumont, 1937). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A. The first of several film adaptations based on the classic novel by Russell Thorndyke, this is the story of Dr. Syn (George Arliss in his last screen role), a venerable village pastor, who, as the masked Scarecrow, is also the head of a local smuggling ring. The good doctor is far more than he seems, however as he was once the notorious pirate Captain Clegg! Offered here is a beautiful stone litho poster for this wonderful film, featuring a striking portrait of Arliss. There is a misfold crease, museum tape repair on reverse, tack holes with rust stains in the image, some water staining and light wrinkling, but these are minor flaws, none of which can truly detract from the enormous eye appeal of this marvelous poster. Fine-.
