    The Black Cat (Universal, 1934). Pressbook (11.5" X 18").
    By 1934, Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff were two of the biggest names in Hollywood, the reigning kings of Universal Horror. It was natural, therefore, that the studio would want to team up these blockbuster actors as quickly as possible. This was the first film to feature the diabolical duo, a chilling and compelling picture that cast the two actors as fervent enemies, contending for the love of a woman dead for many years. One of the finest films in either actor's career, it was also Universal's biggest money-maker for 1934. Not surprisingly, paper from this cinematic masterpiece is exceptionally scarce. We're pleased to offer here a gorgeous pressbook from this exceptional film in superb condition. It has been folded horizontally once, and we note a very small corner bump in the top left, but in all other respects, this pressbook is immaculate and complete. You will be hard pressed to find another copy in such near-perfect condition. For anyone who ever shuddered at the classic Universal monsters, this item is a must-have! Near Mint-.
