One Frightened Night, the 1935 Christy Cabanne family relationship inheritance mistaken identity murder mystery horror comedy ("Mascots mirthful mystery"; "With this superb cast"; a wacky story of an old man who decides to give away a million dollars each to friends, because he has no relatives, but at a dinner where he is announcing this, his long lost granddaughter shows up, but then a second woman shows up claiming to be the granddaughter as well, and then the "first" one is found murdered, but after much confusion and attempted murders, everything is sorted out) starring Charley Grapewin, Lucien Littlefield, Mary Carlisle, Regis Toomey, and Arthur Hohl

Important Added Info: Note that movie posters from this movie are incredibly rare. We have never sold even a single poster or lobby card from this movie until we received this one-sheet, only a handful of stills! Also note that the poster is undated, but it has a litho number, and comparing this number to our massive database of litho numbers taken from actual movie posters, we can determine that this poster is almost certainly from the 1945 re-release of this 1935 movie. Interestingly, Mascot closed in 1935 when it and several other studios merged to become Republic, but this poster was not updated to mention Republic studio. A knowledgeable collector tells us that Republic would often use the first release printing plates to create the re-release posters, which is why this poster still mentions Mascot. The only changes they made was to remove the address below the Mascot logo and to add "A Re-Release" below the title.

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster had "A Re-Release" printed below the title, and some underhanded person had a linenbacker paint over that area when it was being backed. The poster also had separation and small paper loss at the crossfolds and tape was on the back of each crossfold. There were some tears and small paper loss on parts of some foldlines, and a few pinholes and small tears around the edges. Overall, the poster was in good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects, and of course the re-release information was painted over.
