    Description

    Sherlock Holmes Faces Death (Universal, 1943). Three Sheet (41" X 81"). At a convalescent home where Dr. Watson has volunteered, several murders force Watson to call upon Sherlock Holmes and his illuminating detective skills. After the case was solved, though, Watson might have regretted his decision when Holmes began pontificating about patriotism and the innate goodness of man. Some fans hold this Holmes entry as their favorite of the Universal series, but even more agree that the poster is among the best, and rarest, of the Holmes' films. This three sheet has some vertical fold line separation in the bottom two-thirds. The edges are a little scuffed, but the art is unblemished. Fine/Very Fine.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
