    Description

    The Walking Dead (Warner Brothers, R-1942). Insert (14" X 36"). For years this poster has been mis-described as being reissued in 1939. The fact that this insert is on flat paper stock and not linen finish should substantiate that the poster was not reissued in 1939 as has been previously accepted. Many of Warner's pictures from the 1930's were reissued between 1942 and 1945 due to the cutback in film production during World War II. Those screens still needed to be filled, so classics like "The Walking Dead" were brought back from the vaults.The condition of this insert is fantastic with only minimal wear to the three fold lines. There are faint stains in the lower border and two tack holes in each of the upper corners. There are some very minor horizontal scratches in the upper portion of the insert that go across Karloff's face, however these do not break the surface of paper and are not overly distractive. Fine+.

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