    Description

    The Walking Dead (Warner Bros., 1936). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Heritage is pleased to offer this classic Boris Karloff original release one sheet for the very first time! Posters for this title rarely appear and when they do they are usually from the 1942 reissue. Karloff stars as a down-on-his-luck ex-con, who is framed for a murder and executed. A scientist uses an experimental procedure to bring Karloff back to life and he sets out to seek answers from those that framed him. One by one, the men who set Karloff up meet their deaths due to their own guilt. This well-crafted Warner Bros. horror/thriller was directed by the great Michael Curtiz of Casablanca fame and was one of the few horror films created by the legendary director. Karloff complained early in the production that without dialog, his character was too much like Frankenstein's Monster. Producer Hal Wallis quickly brought in a team of writers, improved the dialog and created another classic film in the pantheon of horror. Prior to restoration, there was slight fold wear with tiny chips with some small chipping in the borders also. There has been some airbrushing to the borders. Some light toning still shows on the poster. Don't miss this great rarity of which only a handful of copies exist.
