Cat. #003281: TOD SLAUGHTER

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Absolutely impossible to find vintage 10x8-inch black and white still from a Sweeney Todd film, boldly signed in black fountain pen in the 1930s: "Yours murderously, Tod Slaughter." The only in-character example we have ever encountered. In fine condition for its age, with some light edge wear and a few minor handling dings. Madcap, hammy British actor is remembered by horror fans as the screen's first Sweeney Todd in The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (1936), and was unforgettable in Sexton Blake and the Hooded Terror (1938), The Face At The Window (1939), Crimes At The Dark House (1940), the Todd shorts Bothered by a Beard (1945) and Puzzle Corner No. 14 (1952), Strangler's Morgue (1946), Horror Maniacs (1948), The Greed of William Hart (1948), Spring-Heeled Jack (1950),  A Ghost for Sale (1954), and Murder At Scotland Yard (1952).
