    Description

    Man They Could Not Hang, The (Columbia, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Boris Karloff plays Dr. Henryk Savaard, a man obsessed with bringing the dead back to life. He is arrested, tried for murder and hanged. But his trusted assistant brings him back to life to seek revenge on those who sentenced him. Karloff starred in four films for Columbia Studios, and this was the first. The plots were all similar, yet most consider this the best of them. It certainly is the best poster of the group, showing Karloff in one of his most well-remembered roles, as the mad scientist. Very Fine on Linen.
