Description

    The Wolf Man (Universal, 1941). Window Card (14" X 22"). A particularly hirsute Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.) glares out from this eerie duotone window card, poised over the recumbent form of Evelyn Ankers. One of the most important and successful films in the Universal horror franchise, this was a career-defining role for Chaney, who had previously toiled in the shadow of his famous father. Written by Curt Siodmak, the film can be seen as an allegory for the rise of Nazism in Europe (an otherwise good man is transformed into a murdering beast, whose victims are identified by a star that they bear). This unbacked beauty has a top right corner bend and a small scratch to the right of the figure. Some light scuffing across the image is evident, as is a small tear in the left border. The top and bottom edges display very minor edge wear, and there's some very slight foxing at the bottom border. Lastly, there is a small amount of ink smudging at the top in the theater name. Overall, however, this is a very attractive card that should bring out the beast in all horror collectors. Very Fine+.
