DescriptionHold That Ghost (Universal, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41").
Although this was Abbott and Costello's second picture, it was released third, as Universal wanted them in another WWII effort, In the Navy, as a logical follow up to Buck Privates. This was, however, the picture that really got the laughs. It also proved that the comedy team could work wonders with "scares" and paved the way for future films. The bumbling duo are humorously animated on this playful poster, with band leader Ted Lewis and the Andrews Sisters also making an appearance. Professional restoration has addressed edge and fold wear, small tears, and minor bits of paper loss scattered in the image and interior. One of these bits is in Costello's chin, and the upper left corner has a reattached chip with a couple of smaller restored chips. The borders have been airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
