    Description

    Werewolf of London (Universal, 1935). Insert (14" X 36"). When Universal decided to make the first film to deal with lycanthropy, they brought in master make-up artist Jack Pierce to create the perfect Werewolf. What he created was considered so horrific that the make-up was shelved until 1941 when Universal would cast Lon Chaney in "The Wolf Man." The make-up used in this film was 'abbreviated,' yet many consider it to be superior. Henry Hull was cast as the accursed scientist and Warner Oland (taking a break from his roles as Charlie Chan) was his nemesis - another werewolf on the search for a cure to their mutual fate. This insert was folded and does show some slight wear to the fold lines. There is a small scratch in the background above the "f" in "Werewolf," and there is one extra fold line running parallel to the upper fold line. There is a blemish that runs diagonally through the upper portion of the image, and two 1" tears on the upper right border. The title has been written in the lower right border. The posters for this title have always been some of the rarest of the Universal horror cycle. This drop-dead gorgeous insert is a rare find indeed with less than a handful known to exist! Very Fine-.
