The Walking Dead (Warner Bros, R-1942) Near MintThe Walking Dead (Warner Bros., R-1942). Near Mint Condition on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41"). This Warner Bros. horror classic originally came right on the heels of The Bride of Frankenstein, Boris Karloff's second turn as Frankenstein'smonster and a role that made him a household name. The prominence of this character also, however, threatened to pigeonhole the talented and multifaceted actor, who voiced concerns about John Ellman in The Walking Dead as he believed hislack of dialogue and character arc too closely resembled his signature role. Director Michael Curtiz adjusted Karloff's role significantly afterwards by bringing in three new writers to improve his lines and downplay the Frankensteinelements. Offered here is The Walking Dead's 1942 reissue, which depicts Karloff and Marguerite Churchill in striking green, red, and white. Provenance: Poster is part of the private collection of a renown Hollywood insider who owned one of three existing Best Picture poster collections, along with the likes of Steven Spielberg.
