    Description

    Phantom of the Opera (Universal, 1946). First Post-War Release French Grande (47" X 63").
    Claude Rains, who had become an important player in Universal's monster series, became the studio's choice for the remake of their silent classic starring Lon Chaney. Based on Chaney' film and Gaston Leroux's classic story, Rains portrayed the Phantom to perfection as he tries to seduce the young Christine with his concerto and music lessons. This poster depicts Rains as the Phantom looming over the terrified participants and the opera house itself. The top and bottom edge of the poster displays a very slight bit of fraying. The fold lines all have some minor color touchup and there is a minor chip in the left edge. All of these minor issues have been addressed with professional restoration. Very Fine- on Linen.
