    Description

    The Black Room (Columbia, 1935). Swedish One Sheet (27" X 39.5") Eric Rohman Artwork.
    Boris Karloff stars in this thriller, portraying twin brothers cursed by a family legend prophesying that the younger brother will kill his elder. Karloff shined under Roy William Neill's directing, showing a tour de force of acting as he made the two characters unique. This is an extremely rare horror title that has been sought after by horror fans for years, and Eric Rohman's intense illustration of Karloff makes this Swedish one sheet an even more desirable item. A first time sell at Heritage, this poster has faint staining in the right background and a small tear in the right border that are still visible. There is post-restoration horizontal wrinkling towards the top in Karloff's image. Although backed on linen, no further restoration attempts have been made. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
