    Description

    Captain Blood (Warner Brothers, R-1948). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (38" X 55") Luigi Martinati Artwork.
    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 is considered one of Errol Flynn's greatest adventures. Nominated for four Academy Awards, including the coveted Best Picture category, the film also received an Oscar nomination for its sweeping score 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 Martinati, this Italian poster is one of the most beautiful from any of Flynn's swashbuckler classics. Touchup has been applied to the folds with small tears and chips, pinholes in the border and background, and tears and chips in the borders. Still visible is a stain in the lower right border with a few small bits of paper loss. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
