    Description

    Casablanca (Warner Bros., 1946). Very Fine-. First Post-War Release Italian Photobustas (2) (19.25" X 13.5").
    Drama, danger, romance. Michael Curtiz's landmark film brought all of these winning elements to the screen with a masterful quality impossible to imitate, though many have tried. Nominated for a total of eight Academy Awards and winner of three, Casablanca's perfect storm of talented writing paired with keen direction and all-star cast culminated into a film more than worthy of its outstanding picture status. Presented for the first time by Heritage Auctions, these original release photobustas feature Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, and Madeleine Lebeau. Vibrant examples of the format, indications of handling include slight edge wear, pinholes, minor tears, and mild creases. One of the photobustas has a small chip in the bottom border and both have light surface scuffs as well as minor unobtrusive stains. Also present on both pieces are tax stamps in the upper background.
