A Day in the Life of Lovecraft: 7 October 1934

{To Barlow} Saw cinema of Treasure Island last week - splendid atmosphere of 18th century & the sea!


17 August 1934 (USA) release date, so Lovecraft took about 6 weeks to get around to seeing this. Here are vintage images that Lovecraft might have seen in magazine ads and show scenes from the movie. One wonders that Lovecraft would be all that enthralled with the sea, but the 18th century would have set his imagination aglow.
