An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Title Lobby Card (measures 11" x 14") (Learn More)

The Ape, the 1940 William Nigh mad scientist horror thriller ("Suggested by the play by Adam Hull Shirk. Adaption by Curt Siodmak"; although his name this time is spelled "Kurt"; Siodmak must have had a real ape fetish, as he wrote most of the cheesy ape-type movies of the 1940s, including "Bride of the Gorilla", and many other B-horror movie classics!) starring Boris Karloff, Maris Wrixon, Gertrude Hoffman, Henry Hall, Gene O'Donnell, and Ray 'Crash' Corrigan (as the man in the really fake ape suit!). Note that Crash Corrigan made a REALLY wise investment in the 1930s, when he bought a "gorilla suit". In many of the movies in the 1940s where there is a fake gorilla, it is played by Crash Corrigan, no doubt because he could supply the suit!
NOTE: Click on linked names to see a biography.

Condition: good to very good. fine 2" scratch line entering the top of the ape's head; a faint semi-circular scuff line in the ape's arm and body and an even more faint one in Karloff's forehead that runs through his glasses; pinholes in the corners with a few minor stains and creases in the borders; other than the above defects, the card is in pretty nice condition!
