    Description

    Charlie Chan at the Opera (20th Century Fox, 1936). Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39.25").
    After trips to Egypt, Shanghai, the Circus, and the Race Track in previous films, Charlie Chan (Warner Oland) decides to take in a relaxing night at the Opera. Unfortunately for Chan, murder seems to follow him wherever he goes, and he's soon wrapped up in an investigation surrounding a deranged former opera singer (Boris Karloff) who has escaped the asylum seeking revenge on the wife who betrayed him years earlier. This classic picture is considered by many to be the high-point of the Oland Chans and is represented here by a gorgeous Swedish one sheet in superb condition. Only our strict policy of not awarding a grade higher than Very Fine+ to posters mounted on linen keeps us from giving this beauty an even higher grade. Very Fine+ on Linen.
