Octavo, pp. [1-2] 1-269 [270: ad], original blue cloth, front and spine stamped in black, top edge plain. Later edition. This book does not have the film stills added to the later 1932 Grosset & Dunlap edition because it appeared before the film was made, and the illustration on the dust jacket is different from that used on the later film tie-in jacket. First published in the UK as BENIGHTED in 1927. The novel was the basis for the 1932 film directed by James Whale with Boris Karloff, Melvyn Douglas, Charles Laughton, Raymond Massey and others. Five travelers seek refuge during a storm in "an eerie old mansion where they must spend the night with the weirdest household imaginable . playing for laughs as well as chills, [Whale creates] . a genuine masterpiece of black humor . The Old Dark House is the definitive haunted house chiller, a horror film for connoisseurs." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural. At one point considered a lost film, a print was discovered in the Universal vaults in 1968 and the film was restored. Hubin (1994), pp. 656-7. Top edge of pages dusty, a very good copy in good dust jacket with wear at edges and several closed tears. (#152520). N° de réf. du libraire
