    Description

    The Sea Wolf (Warner Brothers, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Based on Jack London's novel and directed by Michael Curtiz, this film stars Edward G. Robinson as Captain Wolf Larsen, a tyrannical leader who rules his ship, the "Ghost," with an iron fist, showing no mercy to anyone. Larsen's motto is "Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven," a line borrowed from Milton's "Paradise Lost." Writer Humphrey Van Weyden (Alexander Knox) along with fugitive Ruth Brewster (Ida Lupino) and sailor George Leach (John Garfield) find themselves imprisoned aboard the doomed vessel and frantically search for a way to escape. This one sheet has fold line wear with some separation, several pinholes in the corners and borders, small tears, and one extra fold line across the top border. Fine.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
