    Description

    Casablanca (Warner Bros., 1946). Folded, Very Fine-. First Post-War Japanese B3 (15" X 20.5") Premiere Style.
    This special poster (the uncommon B3 size) was crafted especially for the first Japanese release of Casablanca, and printed for use in only the theaters where it premiered. The poster mentions that date of June 13, 1946 and the three theaters where it debuted, Musashimo Kan, Houraku Zza, and Denkikan. Besides being exceedingly rare, its gorgeous imagery of Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman sets it apart from other formats. The picture went on to win the Oscars for Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay. To the surprise of no one, Bogart received his first nomination for Best Actor. A highly unique find, the B3 shows light edge and fold war with minute tears, a few printing creases, and mild foxing that extends into Bergman's shoulder.
