    Description

    The Phantom of the Opera (Universal, 1925). Rolled, Very Fine-. Swedish One Sheet (23.25" X 35") Advance.
    As one of Universal's early horror hits, this adaptation of Gaston Leroux's famous novel became the stuff of movie legends, due in large part to the talents of its leading actor. In addition to turning in a terrifying yet moving performance, Lon Chaney more than lived up to his moniker as "The Man of a Thousand Faces" as the disfigured Erik. He appears in his masquerade costume on this stone litho Swedish one sheet, which Heritage is pleased to present for the first time. It displays light edge wear, soft creases, and a minor chip at the top edge. There are small unobtrusive stains in the borders, as well as a few moderate tears, a few of which are braced with archival tape on the verso. Rolled, Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
