DescriptionThe Lost World (First National, 1925). Danish One Sheet (23.5" X 35").
Horror and science fiction history fans alike know the story of this film well. Penned by Arthur Conan Doyle in 1912, the film features pioneering stop motion special effects by Willis O'Brien, who eight years later would delight the world with King Kong. The film has an all-star cast of the time, including Wallace Beery, Bessie Love and Lewis Stone. Posters for this classic have always been very rare, with this excellent Danish one sheet counting as a Heritage first. Professional restoration to this thrilling stone litho poster includes touchup to the folds, small chips and tears at the borders, and two misfolds at the top and bottom of the vertical fold. There were a couple of tears that extended into the credit area and the image background. Also restored was some paper loss in the bottom right corner, and the borders have been partially airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
