    Description

    The Ghost Breakers (Paramount, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard star in one of the best pictures to ever blend horror and comedy! Goddard's character is set to inherit a castle on an island with only one catch; it seems that the castle is haunted. Although this wasn't a sequel, Paramount recast the duo after the success of 1939's The Cat and the Canary. Posters for this title are fan favorites and sought after by collectors. This copy had tape behind the folds and on each corner. There was some surface rubbing in the area of the ghost's midsection above the "The" in the title. There was some slight paper loss in the crossfolds. All of these issues were professionally addressed in the restoration and the poster now displays well. Fine- on Linen.
