    The Body Snatcher (RKO, 1945). One Sheet (27" X 41") William Rose Artwork.
    Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi join forces once again for this RKO horror classic, loosely based on a story by Robert Louis Stevenson. Val Lewton, producer of such cult classics as Cat People and I Walked with a Zombie, helped adapt the screenplay with Robert Wise directing. Dr. Wolfe MacFarlane (Henry Daniell) is a surgeon experimenting on corpses, dug up by his henchman John Gray (Karloff). With William Rose's ghoulish artwork of Karloff, this terrific one sheet will make a prized possession for any horror buff. The poster now looks great after touchup to the folds, pinholes, and creasing at the bottom. Very Fine- on Linen.

    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
