Nevermore

Stumbled onto this LA gallery site the other night and was blown away by an amazing exhibit from 2006 entitled Nevermore: The Edgar Allan Poe Films of Roger Corman. Featuring two full web pages of gorgeous color and black & white prints with rare AIP production art, contact sheets, import posters, candid behind the scenes pix of Price, Steele, Karloff, Shepherd, Lorre, Chaney Jr., Rathbone and more, I think you’ll agree there are some truly stunning shots here: http://drkrm.com/corman.html

AMAZING! KIND OF PRICEY THOUGH FOR PRINT COPIES BUT I GUESS THESE ARE LIMITED OR SOMETHING?

Not sure exactly, probably just rare stuff from private collections donated by those who worked on all aspects of these Corman films.

This is some interesting stuff. Another great find by Karswell. As always, thanks for sharing.
