    The Raven (Universal, 1935). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Already well established rivals for the top spot in the horror genre, no other film pit Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff against each other so well as the studio's two Edgar Allen Poe inspired pictures, The Black Cat and The Raven. Stoking the burgeoning bitterness between the two, Universal gave top billing to Karloff, despite Lugosi playing the main character. Chilling to the core, this story has the audience continually question who the movie's real monster is, Lugosi as the mad doctor, or Boris Karloff's murderer on the lam. Both turn in solid performances, but Lugosi steals the show with a torture-obsessed character that far surpasses creepy and delves headlong into the truly terrifying. In fact, the film may have done its job too well, as it contributed to a temporary ban on horror films in Great Britain. This fabulous card, never offered by Heritage before, pictures both stars in portrait and is a new market find. The colors are brilliant on this card. The card has some holes and slight paper loss to the upper left corner and a chip from the upper right corner. There is a tiny amount of surface paper loss in the upper left corner just into the border art and a small bit in the lower left corner border only. Fine+.
