    Description

    The Return of the Vampire (Columbia, 1943). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41").
    Bela Lugosi dons the cape and fangs of the vampire in this classic horror film -- not as Dracula, but as Count Armand Tesla, since Universal still controlled the rights to Bram Stoker's creation. When his tomb is inadvertently opened during the London Blitz, Tesla recruits a talking werewolf (Matt Willis) to serve him as he embarks on a new reign of terror. Lugosi is marvelous and menacing on this spine tingling one sheet, his hand clawing at the air, seemingly with a mind all its own. Co-stars Willis and Frieda Inescort also make a terrifying impression as beauty and the beast in the bottom left of the poster. Professional restoration has addressed slight fold wear and separations, creases, and a couple of tears in the borders. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
