    Description

    The Scarlet Claw (Universal, 1944). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    It's been said that The Scarlet Claw is the best film in the Sherlock Holmes series created at Universal, and the one sheet rarely turns up at auction. Roy William Neill, who directed the majority of Holmes pictures, crafted this thriller with suspense in the same style as the Universal horror pictures of Lon Chaney Jr. and Bela Lugosi (whom he directed in Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man). As spine tingling as the film, the one sheet has had professional restoration to address staple holes in the borders and outer background, small crossfold chips, minor border tears, and applied touchup to the folds. There is paper loss in the top border at the vertical fold and tears in the lower right background, under the title, and one from the vertical fold into Basil Rathbone's forehead. Fine+ on Linen.


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