    Description

    Freaks (Excelsior, R-1949). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Tod Browning's unforgettable morality tale was like nothing else seen on movie screens of its era, and the heated controversy it evoked essentially brought an end to the career of the famed director of Dracula. That it is now considered a hallowed classic is no surprise, given the power of the visuals and the authenticity of using actual "freaks" as actors. There has been touchup to the folds with small crossfold chips and to a pinhole in the upper left border. The upper right section of the poster has been reattached from above the "S" of the title to the top of the vertical fold with some light touchup applied. There is some unaddressed surface paper loss in the lower right border and top left corner. The poster shows some fading and the linen is trimmed up to the borders. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
