I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE (1943) – 2$7,500.00
Vintage original 41 x 27″ (103 x 67 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. James Ellison, Frances Dee, Tom Conway, Edith Barrett, James Bell, dir: Jacques Tourneur; RKO. The story (based on Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre) of a nurse who ventures to the West Indies to care for the wife of a plantation manager. She falls in love with him and seeks to cure the wife of her mental paralysis by involving herself in a native voodoo ceremony. A brilliant and atmospheric tale produced by master Val Lewton, the horror suggested by the use of lighting, shadows and camera work.
The images on this poster are scary and the graphics bold, reflecting the feel of this suspenseful classic. This fine copy has been preserved on linen. There has been touch-up to the folds, with some extra touch-up in the “H” of “WITH” and the “O” of “ZOMBIE”. There has also been some touch-up and repair to the blank white margins and at corners, and there were a few tiny bits of missing paper along the top edge. NEAR FINE.
