DescriptionThe Hound of the Baskervilles (20th Century Fox, 1939). Near Mint. Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
The first of 14 Sherlock Holmes movies made with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, this classic tale by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would establish Rathbone as the definitive Holmes. In fact, this inaugural chapter of the Sherlock Holmes series was so overwhelmingly popular that 20th Century Fox pushed out an unplanned sequel, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, less than six months later. This very desirable title card is in exceptional condition, with vibrant colors. Only a very small stain on the right border and a very light corner bend and edge wear.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
