RARE 'CARNIVAL OF SOULS' ONE SHEET
Listed as "extremely rare" at auction is a one sheet movie poster for the very available cult film, CARNIVAL OF SOULS. The lot was sold on 22 March 2009 for $478. Following is the listing as it appeared during the auction:
"Carnival of Souls (Herts-Lion International, 1962). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Herk Harvey's only feature film was not a box office smash or particularly noted at the time of its release, but this eerie, subtly horrific tale of a disenfranchised woman (Candace Hilligoss) and her descent into the league of the undead, managed to find a place in horror film history. This extremely rare one sheet (note director Harvey in the lower left corner in his ominous role as "The Man") has a tape lift on the back of the bottom right corner, but is in otherwise stellar condition. Very Fine + on Linen."
Tomorrow, bids will be accepted for another lot from CARNIVAL OF SOULS that includes a "press booklet" and two stills.
