Original Vintage Theatrical Window Card Movie Poster (measures 14" x 18") (Learn More)

The Mark of the Vampire, the 1935 Tod Browning horror thriller ("You will not dare believe... what your eyes see!"; "These two strange symbols meant 'marked for death'!"; "Important! Do not divulge the secret of 'Mark of the Vampire' to your friends... let them by mystified... and thrilled!"; based on the story 'The Hypnotist' by Tod Browning; about a father and daughter vampire team in an unnamed European country, and naturally, wherever they go, people are found dead) starring Lionel Barrymore, Elizabeth Allan, Bela Lugos (as Count Mora)i, Lionel Atwill, Jean Hersholt, Carroll Borland (as Luna, a female vampire; Borland was a huge Lugosi fan who wrote a script intended for him and appeared in this movie with him, which was only one of six movies she appeared in!), Holmes Herbert, and James Bradbury Jr. Note that director Tod Browning had incredible success with Dracula in 1931, but Freaks in 1933 was a major failure (at the time), and he was trying to regain his former glory with this movie, which was very loosely based on another major success, London After Midnight, which starred Lon Chaney Sr.!

Important Added Info: Note that this window card had its top blank border trimmed and now measures 14" x 18".

Condition: good to very good. the top blank 4" of the window card were neatly trimmed off; the poster was roughly folded across the middle at one time resulting in an uneven but clean crease across the center of the card (there are no extra creases above and below the single crease; there is a fine scratch mark that runs from Lugosi's brow down to the crook of his arm, but it is barely visible on his nose; the top right corner of the card was completely separated at one time and there was a 1" tear in the center of the top border with a connected 1" diagonal tear coming off of the bottom of it; someone long ago put tape on the back of the window card across the center fold, around the edges of the card, and on the back of the two tears in the top of the card; there is staining and small paper loss in the lower left of the card (in the bottom border extending into the "T" of "TOD" and to a lesser extent in the bottom of his last name; there is a 1" tear going up through the "B" of "BROWNING" and a semi-circular crease above the "d Brow" of Browning's credit; finally there are several very tiny surface chips down the left and right borders; The poster is in better condition than the above makes it sound! The image area is not that affected by the defects. Surely a talented restorer could repair the defects and greatly improve the appearance of this extremely rare window card, without putting hardly any paint anywhere on the window card!
