    The Curse of the Cat People (RKO, 1944). Folded, Very Fine. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Though the movie has some of the same stars playing the same characters from Cat People (1942), the story of The Curse of the Cat People is only barely related to the earlier film. That didn't stop RKO from marketing The Curse of the Cat People as a direct sequel though, and even the posters for the two films are strikingly similar. The poster offered here has a layout that is unmistakably taken from the design of the earlier poster, complete with a snarling black cat prowling behind an image of the main cast. The Curse of the Cat People stars Simone Simon, Kent Smith, Ann Carter, and Jane Randolph, and even if the poster does look quite familiar, it is still a beautiful image for the entertaining film. The poster has slight edge and fold wear, mild fold separations, pinholes, tiny nicks, and small tears. There is also some faint image ghosting, and there are a few unobtrusive scuffs and smudges in and near the borders. In the credits area is a subtle stain, and on the verso is a small piece of cellophane tape.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
