    Werewolf of London (Universal, 1935). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Universal continued to pave the way deep into the horror genre with this entry. After creating successful films with vampires (Dracula), monsters (Frankenstein) and bandaged wrapped denizens of evil (The Mummy and The Invisible Man) the studio finally tackled the subject of shape-shifting lycanthropes with the Werewolf of London. Henry Hull was the unfortunate victim of the bite of another werewolf (Warner Oland) and once again, the job of creating the howling beast fell to Jack Pierce. Pierce's first makeup was considered so terrifying that it wasn't used until The Wolf Man in 1941, so it was altered to reveal more of Hull's actual appearance - and the rest is history. The film remains a fan favorite and the first werewolf of the cinema. This incredible title card is extremely scarce and has brilliant color but does have a few issues in the form of slight wear to the border, a chip off of the lower left corner, writing in the upper left corner, a few pinholes within the field and a tear in the middle of the left border that just goes into the moon in the background (and was repaired on the verso with tape). It is well known throughout collecting that the title cards from the mid-1930s Universal films are among the best designed and this example certainly falls in that category. Heritage sold this same title card once before in 2003 for $16,100. Fine-.
