    Description

    I Walked with a Zombie (RKO, 1943). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
    An item we haven't come across in fifteen years, this fantastic style B half sheet is a rare treat to see at auction. Even better, it features a closeup of the zombified Christine Gordon front and center, as opposed to smaller images in the style A. This sensational atmospheric tale of voodoo on a remote Caribbean island was the second collaboration between director Jacques Tourneur and producer Val Lewton. Forced to do the film by the studio, Lewton objected to the story's original source material (an article in American Weekly Magazine by Inez Wallace), deciding instead to keep the title and push the writers to reference Charlotte Brontë's literary classic, Jane Eyre. Now beautifully restored, this poster once had background creases, border wear and tear, several scattered paper lifts, and a minor hole in the lower left background. There was a horizontal tear from the right border into Christine Gordon's image, and the borders, the "W" in "Walked," and the word "Zombie" in the title have all been airbrushed. The poster was originally rolled, but has since been flattened during restoration. Fine+ on Paper.


    Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
