    Description

    Casablanca (Warner Brothers, 1942). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
    In 1942, Hal B. Wallis and Michael Curtiz hired a slew of talented writers and A-list actors to make what they hoped would be a successful war drama. Instead, they created a legend. Casablanca is possibly the most beloved film of all time, ranking high on virtually every list grading Hollywood's biggest classics since the fifties. Winning much-deserved awards in the categories of Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Writing, this picture was also Humphrey Bogart's first nomination for Best Actor and perhaps his most defining role. Few other films have ever left such an indelible mark on Hollywood, nor ever created so many characters, scenes, music, and, most of all, lines that are so instantly recognizable. Already one of the rarest posters printed for this film, the style B half sheet boasts a wonderful design with a series of portraits revealing the plot's most important characters. Only sold twice before by Heritage, this is a valuable poster for one of the greatest films ever made. Already a great half sheet with just the image alone, the poster looks fantastic after touchup to the folds, a small tear in the bottom border, and very small paper lifts in the top border. There was some misfolding along the horizontal fold with a minor hole and small tear on the left side. The professional restoration is fabulous and the posters displays beautifully! An absolute necessity for any collection, this is a rare chance. Folded, Very Fine-.
