Description

    The Mysterious Dr. Fu Manchu (Paramount, 1929). Full-Bleed One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
    Warner Oland, as the insidious villain Dr. Fu Manchu, glowers in vibrant hues on this spectacular full-bleed one sheet. Oland makes the first of four screen appearances as Sax Rohmer's antagonist and was the first actor to portray the character in a feature film. This film makes an effort to explain Fu's hatred of all whites by showing the death of the Doctor's family during the Boxer Rebellion. Twenty years later, Fu Manchu is a full-blooded villain, using a hypnotized Jean Arthur to help wipe out the British family Fu holds responsible for the deaths of his loved ones. This is one of the rare Paramount full-bleed posters which the studio only did for a few seasons. There are two styles of one sheets for this film and this is, in our opinion, the better of the two. The poster is marked "Silent" at the bottom of the posters and this was one of the transitional films that was released in a silent and sound version. The poster has pinholes in the borders and small tears at the folds, which have been addressed with touch-up and airbrushing, rendering it a beautiful showpiece. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
