    Description

    Murders in the Rue Morgue (Universal, 1932). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Bela Lugosi stars as Doctor Mirakle, a carnival sideshow entertainer. When not courting the bearded lady, the amateur scientist kidnaps Parisian prostitutes and mixes their blood with that of his pet gorilla. When he learns that he needs the blood of a virgin, he and his monkey turn their eyes to Camille L'Espanye (Sidney Fox). Her boyfriend becomes the prime suspect for her disappearance and her mother's murder, so he must prove his innocence and save his sweetheart from the clutches of the evil doctor. Directed by Robert Florey, this film displays the same visual flair as German Expressionist classics like "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari," with high lighting and sharp angles. This classic lobby card shows the ape hovering over the fainted Fox, and the image area is marred by only a few abrasions. The left corner has minor paper loss, the right side has a tear just above Lugosi's creepy stare, and the borders contain multiple pinholes and dirt smudges. Art on this title is rare, and this card ranks with the most memorable. Very Good/Fine.
