    Description

    Before Midnight (Columbia, 1933). One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the collection of William E. Rea.
    This clock-ticking, suspense-signaling one sheet is making its Heritage debut. Ralph Bellamy, near the top left center of the poster, is an inspector visiting the requisite creepy mansion in which the owner believes he'll be murdered due to a family curse. June Collyer also stars, and can be seen just below Bellamy on the poster. Before Midnight was followed by three additional "Inspector Trent" mysteries: One Is Guilty, The Crime of Helen Stanley, and Girl in Danger, all released in 1934 and starring the affable Bellamy. There are crossfold separations, enlarged pinholes in the borders, a chip in the top right corner, edge wear, and vertical misfolds. From the collection of William E. Rea. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
