Description

    Dead of Night (Eagle-Lion, 1945). British Quad (30" X 40").
    A chilling horror anthology, this film is made up of five stories of supernatural terror united by a simple framing device: a group of strangers inexplicably gathered at a country farmhouse, each compelled to tell a story of supernatural happenings. Several of the stories, like the story of a bizarre driver with "room for one more," and a ventriloquist whose mind begins slipping away as his dummy comes to life, have become nearly legendary in their own right, and the structure of this classic film inspired countless imitators in the ensuing decades. Offered here is an extremely rare country-of-origin poster for this wonderful film. With superb art by Leslie Hurry, we estimate that this is one of only a small handful of these posters known to exist. This particular copy had paper lifts in the borders, water staining in the bottom border, and some small tears in the left border, but expert professional restoration has returned this rare treasure to a like-new appearance. This may be your only opportunity to acquire this great piece, so get your bid in right away! Fine+ on Linen.
