    Description

    The Black Cat (Universal, 1934). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). One of the creepiest, most atmospheric films to come out of Universal's Golden Age of Horror was this exceptional film that teamed fright-masters Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. The movie dealt with themes of love, war, revenge, Satanism, and even necrophilia, and was directed by Edgar Ulmer who, early in his career, had worked as a set designer on the legendary silent film, Der Golem, along side art director and famous architect Hans Poelzig. In fact, Karloff's character name in this film - Hjalmar Poelzig - is a tribute to Ulmer's former colleague. The film is widely regarded as one of the finest horror pictures ever produced, noted for its memorable Art Deco/Bauhaus sets and the inspired performances of the two stars. Like most Universal horror titles of the 1930s, paper from this movie is extremely scarce. The lobby card offered here has had restoration work done, but the restoration is of the highest quality, resulting in a very attractive piece. The restoration, including paper-backing, has addressed pinholes and tear seals, replacement of the upper right corner, and repainting/repairing of the borders, particularly the bottom right. Nevertheless, this is a beautiful card featuring an incredibly striking image. Very Good on Paper.
