Cat. #00104012: PETER COE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage 10x8-inch black and white restrike film still from The Mummy's Curse (1944), boldly signed in black felt-tip marker for horror movie guru Blackie Seymour in the 1980s. In good condition, with a few minor handling dings. Chiseled, athletic Yugoslavian-born Peter Coe, who was typically cast as fiery ethnic types, made several important contributions to the horror, sci-fi and fantasy film genres, with starring roles in House of Frankenstein (1944) and The Mummy's Curse (1944).  He was also memorable, alongside Jon Hall and Maria Montez, in the exotic adventure flick Gypsy Wildcat (1944), John Wayne in Sands of Iwo Jima (1949) and a classic episode of T.V.'s "The Twilight Zone" entitled "The Man in a Bottle" (1960).  Coe was a close, personal friend of Ed Wood, Jr., who long intended to cast him in a biopic about the last years of Bela Lugosi.
