Description

    The Invisible Man (Universal, 1933). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A, Teaser, Karoly Grosz Art.
    By 1933 Universal Studios had scored a tremendous success with their push into the horror arena with films based on classics such as Dracula (1931) and Frankenstein (1931), both relying on horrific makeup and gore. With The Invisible Man they turned their eye toward special effects as the fright factor in this glorious adaptation of the H. G. Wells novel. The studio brought in the director who made the "Frankenstein Monster" so exciting, James Whale. He brought to the horror film a tongue-in-cheek element which almost 85 years after the film's release makes it so very enjoyable. Claude Rains, who only appears on camera briefly in the film but whose voice is the epitome of pure evil, is brilliant in the role of a scientist whose work drives him mad. Yet it is the special effects that are the stars of this film. Though appearing somewhat primitive by today's CGI standards one can only imagine the jaw-dropping impact the effects of wizard John Fulton and his team produced in 1933. Heritage is pleased to present for the first time this impressive Advance or Teaser one sheet. In only a few instances did the studio produce a teaser for their horror greats but when they did they were often outstanding as is this poster! Perhaps one of the most impressive of all of the great Universal horror posters, we believe this would be a cornerstone in any advanced collection. The poster has minimal restoration to address a small chip from within the lower left black area near the bottom border as well as an additional horizontal fold above the upper fold and mirrored below the lower fold. There was some fold separation in the upper vertical fold and within the upper fold but with no paper loss at all. There was a tiny chip from the upper left border and that is the only touchup done within the border. The colors are as vibrant as the day the poster was printed and there is almost no paint used in the restoration. Included is a snipe which was lifted off of the poster in restoration. Very Fine on Linen.
