Lady in the Lake (MGM, 1947). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41"). Based on a novel by Raymond Chandler, known for other popular titles like The Big Sleep and Farewell My Lovely, this debut directorial effort from well-established actor Robert Montgomery was filmed from Detective Philip Marlowe's point of view. He used all sorts of creative gimmicks to get his face on-screen, such as showing his reflection in a mirror, but otherwise his "eyes" took the place of the camera. Restoration has made corrections to fold wear and separations, some paper loss at the edges and folds, a few tears, and creases.
