    Description

    The Wolf Man (International Pictures, 1949). First Post-War Release Italian 4 - Foglio (55" X 78").
    Lon Chaney Jr. made his mark in the cinema with this entry in the Universal horror series. Although he had appeared in Man Made Monster the prior year, and under the name Lon Chaney Jr., he decided to drop the Jr. and continue in his father's footsteps of making a career as the new "Man of a Thousand Faces." Under Jack Pierce's incredible makeup, Chaney became the screen's greatest werewolf. This makeup had been tested on Henry Hull in 1935's Werewolf of London, but a less hirsute version was eventually decided on for that role. By 1941, the studio decided that the country was ready for a real Wolf Man and created a legend in the process. The film was released for the first time in Italy eight years later, and it was worth the wait given the extraordinary poster artwork by Paolo Tarquini. The piece is in excellent condition, as touchup has been applied to edge wear with small tears, and fold wear with minor paper loss. An irresistible find for early horror fans! Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
