    Charlie Chan in City in Darkness (20th Century Fox, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Sidney Toler once again stars as the intrepid detective Charlie Chan, this time on the trail of a killer in Paris during a blackout. The victim is treasonous munitions manufacturer Petroff (Douglass Dumbrille), who has many enemies. Co-starring Harold Huber as a bumbling police inspector, with Lynn Bari, Lon Chaney Jr. and Leo G. Carroll seen also in smaller roles. This bright one sheet had fold wear, crossfold separations, pinholes in the borders and field, and two small tears at the right edge with one extending into the last "S" of the title. These issues have been addressed with some restoration work, and the linen has been trimmed to the edge of the poster. A rarely seen Chan poster, this will be a popular item for all fans. Fine+ on Linen.
