    Clown doll prop from Poltergeist. (MGM, 1982) Vintage original clown doll prop constructed of soft sculpture doll with composite head built on internal substructure and expertly painted and finished with wool hair and dressed in fabric costume. From the unforgettable scene when little "Robbie Freeling's" (Oliver Robbins) childlike fear of things that go bump in the night turns to real terror as the clown doll physically attacks him. There were multiple clown dolls created with each representing different stages of transformation from this, the benign version and others, the malevolent versions. Exhibiting some fading to fabric and missing bells on the feet and hat. In vintage very good condition. Please note: This item was photographed behind a protective acrylic display and we were unable to shoot the piece unobscured. This item is located in the state of Nevada and special shipping arrangements will apply.
