    Description

    Werewolf of London (Universal, 1935). Jumbo Window Card (22" X 28").
    In one of Universal's earliest horror classics, Henry Hull stars as the ill-fated Dr. Glendon who is viciously attacked by the hideous beast Yogami (Warner Oland) while on an expedition in Tibet. When he returns to London, Glendon understands his condition transforms him into a werewolf during each full moon, and desperately seeks a cure before he attacks more innocent victims. The great Jack Pierce created the superb makeup for this ground breaking film, which was the first to deal with the horror of lycanthropy, paving the way for a genre that has captured audiences for decades. Valerie Hobson co-stars as the doctor's terrified wife. This jumbo window card, the first copy we've ever heard of to surface in the hobby, had some damage prior to restoration. There was a small hole in the word "night" and another that removed the "A" from "A Universal Picture". The poster also had some slight staining on the left quarter with just a bit more in the center. There were some cracks in the lower left and right corners within the black background. Although this sounds like quite a bit, we're just being detailed as the integrity of the poster is actually quite sound and the restoration was first rate. Fine-.
