DescriptionThe Scarlet Claw (Universal, 1944). CGC Graded Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
Though not based on any Conan Doyle story, The Scarlet Claw is regarded by Baker Street aficionados as the best of Universal's Sherlock Holmes series. Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) journey to Canada to investigate a series of mysterious murders. Heritage is pleased to present a rare complete lobby card set from this beloved Holmes' film. General signs of handling include mild corner bends and a few pinholes in the borders. The title card has a small tear in the upper border and another card has a tear at the top that extends into the upper background, both of which have cellophane tape on the verso. There is also a card with a slight paper lift in the lower border, and there is a card with a minor chip at the top edge. CGC has given this lot an average grade of 7.0 due to there being collector's ink stamps on the verso. However, as these do not show through to the front, we have bestowed a higher grade to this lot. Very Fine.
Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
