    Description

    The Return of Chandu (Principal Distributing, 1934). Six Sheet (81" X 81").
    We're going to have to find a new book of adjectives to do any justice to this amazingly awesome six sheet from the classic Bela Lugosi chapter-play. This is a pulpy, lurid, and stunningly cool image to set the heart palpitating for kids of every age. Bela Lugosi stars as a crime-fighting magician trying to save his girlfriend (a princess, of course) from the evil cat-worshipping Ubasti cult. Paper of any sort on Chandu is tough to come by, making this six sheet very scarce. The poster had small border tears that have undergone restoration, and three Dutch censor stamps in the field that have not. From the Kirk Hammett Collection. Very Fine- on Linen.
