    Charlie Chan at the Circus (20th Century Fox, 1936). Very Fine- on Linen. Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39.5"). Eric Rohman Artwork.
    This was the 11th Fox-produced Chan film to star Warner Oland as everyone's favorite mysterious detective from the East. In this installment, Chan takes his family on an outing to the circus, but soon finds himself as the main attraction in this three-ring mystery. Keye Luke is along for the ride as "Number One Son," and J. Carrol Naish, who later portrayed Charlie Chan on television, appears as a devious lion tamer. Swedish artist Eric Rohman renders an excellent portrait of Oland in this rich poster, a beautiful piece of stone lithography. Touchup has been applied to a few minor border chips, a small tear from the left border to under the "Ol" of "Olive," a tear from the lower border to the "C" of Circus," and the borders have been airbrushed. There was a small chip in the green field next to the distributor logo, and another minor chip in Chan's upper right hairline.

    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
