DescriptionInvisible Ghost (Astor, R-1949). Folded, Very Fine-. One Sheet (27" X 41").
Although Bela Lugosi's roller coaster career had been on an upswing at the end of the 1930s, with notable roles in Son of Frankenstein and Ninotchka, he soon found himself back on Poverty Row, making films for Sam Katzman's Monogram pictures, of which this was the first. Although cheaply made, these Monogram releases were often quite atmospheric, and typically featured solid performances from Lugosi, who remained a dedicated, if underappreciated, actor for the remainder of his career. This eye-catching one sheet, from the 1949 Astor Pictures reissue, features a delightfully creepy image of the Hungarian actor. It has light edge and fold wear, minor fold separations, pinholes, and small tears. There are a couple of slight extra vertical folds, a minor gouge in the "C" of "McGuire," and spotted stains in the lower right with a minute paper lift. Folded, Very Fine-.
Estimate: $300 - $600.
