Description

Ultra-rare signed photo of the horror pioneer and his star

Vintage matte-finish 10 x 8 photo of the cast and crew of the 1934 film Gift of Gab, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "Boris Karloff," "Karl Freund," "Binnie Barnes," "June Knight—Hello Jone," "To Jone, Douglas Montgomery," "Roger Pryor," and "Rian James.” In fine condition, with a crease to the upper right corner. Karl Freund was the innovative cinematographer of Metropolis, Dracula and I love Lucy. He left his mark on the horror genre with his master pieces The Mummy and Mad Love. His autograph is extremely rare. This is the only Freund-signed photo we've ever seen, made even more desirable by the signatures of Karloff and company.
