    Description

    Murder By Television (Imperial-Cameo, 1935). Very Fine-. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    By 1935, Bela Lugosi had already been typecast as a horror star and soon found himself appearing in numerous low budget productions tied to the horror and sci-fi genres. In this outing, he is suspected of murdering a scientist who perfects the ability to broadcast television signals. All of that aside, there may not be an actor today who has such a strong "cult" following as Lugosi, and because of that, his posters and lobby cards are always in high demand. This card features a great shot of him. There is some bending in the upper left part of the card which has been supported on the verso with tape. There is another piece of tape on the verso in the upper right corner. There is some surface paper loss on the verso of upper left corner and a small rubber stamp also on the verso. Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
