    Description

    The Mummy (Realart, R-1951). Half Sheet (22" X 28"). This was Boris Karloff's second Universal horror starring role, following on the heels of his phenomenal success in "Frankenstein." This time, Karloff appears as the Egyptian high priest Imhotep, who comes back to life after thousands of years when his tomb is disturbed. The masterful makeup skills of Jack Pierce give us two great images of Karloff, one as the Egyptologist, and one as the bandage-shrouded, mold-encrusted mummy. This re-issue half sheet has light fold wear, a small edge tear on the upper right, a couple of tape scuffs in the lower right, and a small hole in Karloff's credit. There is a printing smudge that runs across the top of the image area. The poster has been mounted on paper and professionally restored, giving it a very clean appearance. Fabulous images of Karloff, as well as a nice shot of Zita Johann. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
