    Description

    The Invisible Ray (Realart, R-1948). Fine/Very Fine on Paper. Insert (14" X 36").
    Boris Karloff stars as Janos Rukh, a scientist who experiments with radioactive elements in a meteorite, becomes poisoned by the effects of "the Invisible ray" and begins to go insane. This film was way ahead of its time in 1936, as the story described the effects of radioactivity for the first time to audiences. Karloff co-starred with the other legend of horror, Bela Lugosi. Professional restoration has addressed light edge wear, slight creases, a few small border chips, and pinholes, including torn pinholes. There was a top left corner chip and a faint scratch in the interior. The borders have been mostly airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.


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