DescriptionCaptain Blood (Warner Brothers, 1935). Fine on Cardstock. Window Card (14" X 22"). Alex Raymond Artwork.
Based on the thrilling adventure novel by Rafael Sabatini, this movie, about a dashing young doctor who becomes the leader of a band of pirates, was a star-making vehicle for a young Errol Flynn. Over the next several decades, Flynn would become one of the greatest cinematic swashbucklers of all time. Rounding out the cast is Flynn's greatest foil, the inimitable Basil Rathbone, and his finest leading lady, the luminous Olivia de Havilland. The card has been professionally restored which included replacing top 6.5 inches of the black upper imprint area. The white borders have been airbrushed but the interior artwork appears untouched. The card displays nicely. The studio commissioned Alex Raymond (the creator of the comic strip Flash Gordon) to create the artwork used on the ad campaign. Fine on Cardstock.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
