    Description

    The Walking Dead (Warner Brothers, 1936). Insert (14" X 36").
    Boris Karloff stars as a down-on-his-luck ex-con, who is framed for a murder and executed. A scientist uses an experimental procedure to bring Karloff back to life and he sets out to seek answers from those that framed him. One by one, the men who set Karloff up meet their deaths due to their own guilt. This well-crafted Warner Brothers horror/thriller was directed by the great Michael Curtiz of Casablanca fame and was one of the few horror films created by the legend. Karloff complained early in the production that without dialog, his character was too much like Frankenstein's Monster. Producer Hal Wallis quickly brought in a team of writers, improved the dialog and created another classic film in the pantheon of horror. Posters for this title rarely appear and when they do they are usually from the 1942 reissue. This is the first time Heritage has offered this wonderful and rare original insert. There is one set of staple marks in each corner and some minor wear to the borders. There is also a slight extra horizontal crease by the upper fold line and there is a minor bit of color-break on the folds. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
