    Description

    The Mummy (Realart, R-1951). Fine+ on Linen. Insert (14" X 36").
    "Karloff - The Uncanny...in his most startling role!" Indeed, this was a pivotal portrayal for rising star Boris Karloff, as it would build on his recently acquired fame from Frankenstein and solidified the actor's place as the reigning King of Horror. Originally conceived as a story about the famous French magician Cagliostro, who claimed to have lived for centuries, this film was later rewritten to take advantage of the current craze for all things Egyptian. Offered here is an extremely attractive reissue insert from this classic film, which is making its first appearance at Heritage. Professional restoration has addressed edge and fold wear, small tears, mild chipping at the edges, and some unobtrusive staining. There are unaddressed pinholes into the interior, and the insert's borders have been airbrushed. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
