Description

    The Walking Dead (Warner Brothers, R-1942). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Ex-con John Ellman (Boris Karloff) is executed for a crime he did not commit, moments before evidence proving his innocence is received. Seeing an opportunity to advance his theories, Dr. Evan Beaumont (Edmund Gwenn) installs a mechanical heart into Ellman's body, reviving the dead man, who now seeks out the criminals who framed him. This striking one sheet is in wonderful condition. It had some fold wear with crossfold separation, but these slight flaws have been addressed with expert professional restoration, returning this highly desirable poster to a like-new appearance. Though this poster is undated, it is believed that this is one of the early WWII reissue posters. During the war, there was a ration on film stock, so Warner Brothers, to keep their theater chain stocked with product, reissued many of their thirties titles, this film being one of them. The original paper on this film is nearly impossible to find. Very Fine- on Linen.

    You gave me several alternatives and explained the pros and cons of each. I concluded that you were someone I could trust and that you would do a good job for me. And you sure did!
