Description

    The Ghost Ship (RKO, 1943). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This small film set aboard a ship cast Richard Dix as a psychopathic captain, who controls the vessel to the point of killing some of the crew. Interestingly, Val Lewton and RKO were sued shortly after the film opened, charged with plagiarizing a script that had been once been offered to the director. There are torn pinholes in the top corners, a tear in the bottom border, unobtrusive stains at the bottom, and some light fold wear. There is a hole in the "ha" of "Richard" at the top with a splice attached with paper tape on the verso. The date in the lower right corner is a misprint found in all of the posters for this film, meaning that this is indeed from the original 1949 release. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
