Original U.S. Half-Sheet Poster (22x28) Originally Folded Graded as Fine

Universal Pictures Original U.S. Half-Sheet Poster (22x28) for the Roy William Neill directed Sherlock Homes mystery TERROR BY NIGHT (1946). Neill had directed FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN (1942) and he brought to this project the feel of the Universal horror films. The film stars Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson. There have been several Sherlocks in the movies and a few good ones too, but Holmes fans always seem to demonstrate their love for Basil Rathbone. Perhaps it was his somewhat aristocratic, often autocratic, and usually didactic personality as an actor that melded so well with personality of Holmes from the stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Rathbone had been a star at MGM, appearing in some important films there, including ANNA KARENINA with Garbo and the vicious Mr. Murdstone in DAVID COPPERFIELD. He also made films at Warner Bros including CAPTAIN BLOOD in 1935 and THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD in 1938. He had a long and successful career. But it is as Sherlock Holmes (he played the sleuth in fifteen films) that he is most remembered. TERROR BY NIGHT was the second to last film in which he portrayed Holmes, but his career continued until his death in 1967. This poster was folded, but has been stored flat for many years. Condition is graded as fine, with the fold lines visible, and some other minor issues. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. half-sheet poster for this film. MovieArt does not sell reproductions.
