The Wolf Man (Realart/Film Classics, R-1948). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
Maria Ouspenskaya, who plays the gypsy woman who warns Lon Chaney, Jr. of his fate comes to the aid of the monster as he lies on the moors. Chaney only appears as the Wolf Man in two scene cards from this set; yet these cards are among the most desirable in the Universal horror series. 
Lon Chaney Jr. stars as the cursed and tormented creature doomed to transformation as a vicious killing monster at the onset of every full moon. This card is from the 1948 Realart reissue of the film and features the always fabulous Maria Ouspenskaya as the gypsy woman and Chaney as the Wolf Man..  This lobby card is considered one of the best cards of the set is as you can see  is simply GORGEOUS!   Many collectors consider this 1948 re-release to be superior to the 1941 release with brighter colors and contrast..   Excellent condition with just border wear..

Universal Studios was in dire financial troubles by the early 1940s and though their wish was to remove themselves from the horror film cycle, wiser heads prevailed.They had made a pocketful of money with the franchise and they realized it was their only surefire money maker. Thus they needed a new horror star and Lon Chaney Jr. had proven himself up to the task. This film would become a big hit for the studio and revived the horror cycle for another ten years. Starring not only Chaney but Claude Rains, Bela Lugosi and Warren William, the film is a masterwork of eerie cinematography and a wonderful musical score.

Although Universal was unsure about the American public's desire for horror movies following the attack on Pearl Harbor, The Wolf Man became a top grossing film for the studio in 1942. In one of the key scenes of this top notch Universal horror classic and one of only two scene cards to picture Chaney in make-up, Maleva (Maria Ouspenskaya) comes to care for the wounded Wolf Man (Lon Chaney Jr.).   What most fans don't know is that Chaney's makeup took six hours to apply and three to remove!
