THE STRANGE DOOR, 1951. Original 1 sheet (27 x 41″) antique movie cinema poster for sale starring; Boris Karloff, Charles Laughton, Sally Forrest. Boris Karloff was the master of terror throughout the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and the 60s. Not only is it remarkable he was in acting for as long as he was with his first film in 1919, but his skill sets and appearance made him infamous for many dark and scary films he made. Next to Vincent Price who had his hey day more predominately in the 50s and 60s these two were truly the masters of terror and have thus produced many of the more valuable horror and science fiction posters spanning these these decades. This original antique poster representing Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Masterpiece of Terror” was used in cinemas all over has very beautiful imagery as is perhaps the best artwork for this film despite the incredible artwork also found in the original insert poster and the original half sheet poster <Follow the links>, both on our site and featured for sale!
This original antique Karloff movie cinema poster is in fine to very fine condition. The poster paper is thick and rigid and does not show any signs of aging outside of one minor defect which is some slight fading on the fold lines, particularly focused at the cross folds.
Condition C9. For Sale $475
