Description

    Mark of the Vampire (MGM, 1935). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Although Lionel Barrymore receives top billing, there's no doubt that the real draw of this film was - and still is - Bela Lugosi, in this sound remake of director Tod Browning's legendary silent film, London After Midnight (1927). In this version, Lugosi plays Count Mora, a vampire who, along with his daughter Luna (Carroll Borland), is terrorizing a small European village. Although many fans object to the ending - in which the vampires are revealed to be actors hired to help flush out a murderer - others see it as a sharp satire on the then-current conventions of horror movies. Whatever your feelings on the ending, there's no denying that this is a particularly attractive card, featuring both Borland and Lugosi. Paper from this picture is exceedingly rare, making this a significant opportunity for collectors of vintage horror memorabilia. It had staple holes in the left and right borders, a pinhole in the top border, a very small chip in the bottom left corner, a small tear in the top left corner, and a small chip in the bottom border, but expert professional restoration has rendered these minor flaws virtually invisible. We've only offered a handful of pieces from the original release of this picture, so don't miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to add this blood-sucking beauty to your collection! Fine/Very Fine.
