The Black Cat, the classic 1934 Edgar Ulmer Universal horror thriller ("Based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe"; "Things you never saw before or ever dreamed of!"; the ads said "based on the Edgar Allan Poe story", but it is very loosely based on it!; Karloff and Lugosi are arch enemies who meet again after many years, and there is a honeymooning couple who is marooned at Karloff's creepy castle, and Lugosi tries to rescue them and get revenge on his old enemy, and meanwhile, there is Satanic worship and black cats roaming the place, and all kinds of weird stuff that you need to see for yourself!) starring Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, David Manners, Julie Bishop (billed as "Jacqueline Wells"), Lucille Lund, Luis Alberni, and Henry Armetta

Important Added Info: Note that first release posters from this Universal horror movie are incredibly rare. We have never before auctioned a single first release U.S. poster (only a few lobby cards and stills) until we received this first release window card!

Condition: very good. Someone once started to fold the card near the middle, but did not do so, but there are some partial creases and scuffs in that area. There are some light stains around the edges and a few scattered in the background areas. The card was once attached to a mat with tape on the back of each border, which stained the backs of the borders. Also, someone used the back of the card for some sort of advertising and printed "IF YOU ARE INTERESTED" on the back, but it does not affect the front. Certainly, this incredibly rare and desirable card can be displayed and enjoyed exactly as it is, or one might choose to have restoration performed. Either way, the new owner will have a wonderful poster from one of the most rare Universal horror titles there is to display on their wall!
