    The Mummy's Hand (Universal, 1940). Fine/Very Fine. Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Cowboy legend Tom Tyler made his first and only foray into horror as Universal's Kharis the Mummy, creating the popular image of a shambling, undead monster wrapped in bandages. Taking inspiration from Boris Karloff's first performance, The Mummy's Hand kicked off a series expanding, and slightly altering, the 1932 storyline. This brilliant title card turns up infrequently, and is only one of three cards showing the film's lumbering villain. It has mild edge wear with minor tears, pinholes, and small paper lifts. There are some faint stains and smudges, and faint writing remnants in the top left corner. Fine/Very Fine.

    Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
