    Description

    The Pearl of Death (Universal, 1944). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Based on the story The Six Napoleons by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this film finds Sherlock Holmes attempting to locate the Borgia pearl before the Oxton Creeper kills another owner of a Napoleonic statuette where the pearl is hidden. Rondo Hatton appeared for the first time as the stalking murderer, The Creeper, a character who would join the pantheon of Universal monsters along with the likes of The Mummy and Frankenstein. Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce will forever be remembered as the quintessential Sherlock Holmes and his trusted sidekick, Dr. Watson, both appearing on this eerie, unsettling one sheet. In highly presentable condition, the poster has had touchup to the folds, a vertical misfold, and small crossfold chips. There are some minor bits of paper loss in the lower left corner. Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
