Description

    Mad Love (MGM, 1935). Australian One Sheet (27" X 40"). World-class cinematographer Karl Freund directed this film after bringing life to the horror classic "The Mummy." The film starred Peter Lorre, in his first role in America, as the mad Dr.Gogol. American posters, or for that matter any posters, for this early horror classic have always been unheard of. Other than a handful of trimmed window cards and a couple of lobby cards, the posters for this film are not known to exist. Oddly enough, the horror film was banned in Australia just around the time this one sheet was printed. Here is the only known poster to exist from this true horror classic. This is a stone litho Australian one sheet to perhaps the most elusive horror title in history. The poster has been linen backed.There was a missing piece of border and just slightly into the artwork on the very lower left side. There were some small tears in the upper dark field as well as a stain which was present in the last two letters at the end of each word of the title. The restoration work done is seamless and minimal and is virtually invisible. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
