    The Black Room (Columbia, 1935). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Horror fans...start your engines, this is one you have been waiting for! Heritage is delighted to offer for the first time the title lobby card from arguably one of Boris Karloff's best films. The actor does double duty as twin brothers Anton and Gregor de Bergmann in a macabre gothic tale about an ancient family curse. One brother is fated to die by the sword of the other brother in the Black Room. It's evil Gregor versus good Anton, with the love interest played by the exquisite Marian Marsh. This highly sought after title card has been professionally restored to address pinholes in the borders and a very tiny hole in the upper right border just extending into the image. There was some soiling in the borders and slight traces of glue on the verso, with some minor scuffing within the dark image which has been precisely and carefully corrected with minor amounts of colored pencil work. The card now appears glowingly beautiful with Karloff rendered at his ghoulish best as Marsh tries in vain to evade his menacing grasp. This is one of only three or four copies known of this very rare title card. Fine+.
