BEDLAM (1946) Three sheet poster
Vintage original 81 x 41″ (203 x 103 cm.) three sheet poster, USA. Boris Karloff, Anna Lee, Billy House, Richard Fraser, Glen Vernon, Ian Wolfe, Jason Robards, Sr., dir: Mark Robson; RKO. Val Lewton’s atmospheric touch, taking place in an 18th-century insane asylum! This is the story of Master George Sims (Karloff), head warden who practices sadistic therapy on the inmates. Along comes a nurse (Lee) who wants to expose his cruel techniques. Sims sets out to break her of helping the inmates. Historically, this film was an early entry in the move to explore subjects of psychology on film, an interest which developed in America at the end of World War II.
Poster displays beautifully on linen. A two-inch (5 cm.) tear at very top center fold repaired. Minor touch-up to fold areas with a bit more touch-up to the bottom third fold junction area. A few pin holes at bottom filled in. One crease in linen at bottom right credit area below Val Lewton’s name. NEAR FINE.
