    Terror by Night (Universal, 1946). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    One glance at this stupendous one sheet, and you can almost hear the clock ticking, the clatter of the train tracks, and the suspense mounting as Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) ponder the clues above, highlighted in yellow. A wide-eyed Renee Godfrey, bathed in ominous light, seems frozen in terror. Though he had played the character in a dozen films previously, many felt Rathbone's performance in Terror by Night was more energetic than in the past, perhaps a reflection of the fact that he had already decided to end his film association with the character (he only made one more Holmes film). Professional restoration has addressed a staple hole in the credit box, pinholes in the borders and background, small tears in the folds, and has airbrushed the borders and applied touchup for some chipping in the folds. There are vertical tears in the left border and off of the lower vertical fold, a tear in the "T" of "Night," a cut in the left border, and a horizontal tear from the vertical fold into Renee Godfrey's forehead. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
