The Art of Sherlock Holmes: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Part 3


This artwork appeared on a window card - a cardboard poster distributed by theaters to area merchants for display in store windows. The top few inches (here cropped off) were left blank so the theater could provide its name, show dates & times, etc.  Next: The series moves from 20th Century Fox to Universal, with Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror.

I love these old posters. To me today's posters just don't measure up.

Too true. Same for magazine and paperback covers. Always figured I was born a few decades late.

Agree, and have always had a warm spot in my heart (and jeans) for Ida Lupino.
