    Description

    Captive Wild Woman (Universal, 1943). One Sheet (27" X 41"). John Carradine takes up the mad scientist role in this Universal classic when he decides to transplant human glands into a wild gorilla (played by serial star Ray "Crash" Corrigan). The result? The gorilla transforms into the beautiful Acquanetta (who makes her film debut here), but eventually reverts to her more savage self. A terrific film; the poster is a classic. This particular example had very light fold wear, with a certain amount of chipping in the border and a piece missing from the "E" in "Captive." There was also a piece missing from the right border, which extended about 3.5" into the image area. All of these flaws have been addressed with professional restoration, rendering them all but invisible. The poster now displays very nicely. Fine+ on Linen.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
