DescriptionThe Body Snatcher (RKO, 1945). One Sheet (27" X 41") William Rose Artwork.
Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi join forces once again for this RKO horror classic, loosely based on a story by Robert Louis Stevenson. Val Lewton, producer of such cult classics as Cat People and I Walked with a Zombie, helped adapt the screenplay with Robert Wise directing. Dr. Wolfe MacFarlane (Henry Daniell) is a surgeon experimenting on corpses, dug up by his henchman John Gray (Karloff). With its ghoulish illustration of Karloff by artist William Rose, this terrific one sheet will make a prized possession for any horror buff. Professional touchup has repaired fold wear and tape stains in the corners. Signs of handling that have not been addressed include edge wear with small tears, some scattered pinholes, and slight toning. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
