Casablanca (Warner Bros., R-1953). Fine/Very Fine. Horizontal Italian Photobusta (13.25" X 19.25"). Undoubtedly one of the finest Hollywood films ever made, Casablanca has stood the test of time for many generations of movie goers. Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and their unforgettable chemistry lead a strong supporting cast including Paul Henreid, Peter Lorre, Conrad Veidt, Claude Rains, and Sydney Greenstreet in this Best Picture Academy Award winner. A cinematic masterpiece, Michael Curtiz's wartime drama serves not only as a bittersweet love story, but also as a compelling tale of redemption. Featuring the four main players, this photobusta has received visible touchup to some of the pinholes, a few of the small tears, a couple of the creases, and very minor paper lifts. Still present are minor tears, pinholes, unobtrusive stains, and mild handling creases. There are several pieces of paper tape on the verso, as well as a paper lift, ink stamps, and ink and graphite writing, none of which are visible from the front.
