Description

    The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (20th Century Fox, 1939). British Six Sheet (77.75" X 87.5") British Title: Sherlock Holmes.
    Any paper from this film is very scarce, and Heritage is pleased to present for the first time this fantastic British six sheet, also known as a British twelve sheet and the only copy we are aware of to still be in existence. 20th Century Fox's The Hound of the Baskervilles, starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, was such a smash hit that the studio took a second crack at Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional sleuth. Costarring Ida Lupino and George Zucco as Professor Moriarty, this classic mystery would set the benchmark for all of the twelve other movies made in Universal Studio's later pictures. Interestingly enough, this was the only entry in the series not based on a Doyle story or an original plot, but rather on the famous stage play by William Gillette. This gorgeous stone litho large format poster has undergone restoration to correct chipping and paper loss in the folds, and has had its borders airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $15,000 - $30,000.
