Pursuit to Algiers (Universal, 1945). One Sheet (27" X 41").
After the assassination of his father, Prince Nikolas (Leslie Vincent), heir to a European throne, is escorted home by Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce), who must keep the young man safe from any number of conspirators out to exterminate him. The striking one sheet offered here had pinholes in the corners, and a tear in Rathbone's shoulder. This poster is in excellent condition. It had a couple tears prior to linen backing which are now virtually undetectable without close inspection. That said, the attractiveness of this great poster is undimmed, and it is ready to be displayed proudly. Professionally linen backed.
This poster is what makes VINTAGE Movie Poster collecting so exciting. Unlike today where posters are computer generated, posters prior to 1980 (especially prior to 1960) were created by talented artists, some of which went on to become famous , highly sought after artists. Look at the creativity and personality of this poster and try and find anything close compared to today’s movie posters that are basically nothing but Photoshop projects.
