In good condition, with pinholes to the four corners, some minor edge wear, and light show-through in the upper left-hand corner area from a red owner's stamp to the verso. Russian acting coach and character actress Maria Ouspenskaya is best remembered for her portrayal of Maleva the gypsy in the 1941 horror classic The Wolf Man, a role she reprised in Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man in 1943.
