    Description

    Casablanca (Warner Brothers, 1942). Insert (14" X 36").
    Universally acclaimed as one of the greatest and most romantic films ever made, Casablanca has truly withstood the test of time. And now, celebrating it's 70th anniversary, TCM has reissued the film in theatres all across America. The film, set during WWII in the French Moroccan locale of Casablanca, depicts the tale of numerous European refugees all vying to escape persecution by the Nazis and live with hope in America. All except the mysterious Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) who, for untold reasons, refuses to return to America but instead, sets up shop as a "saloon keeper." Amidst the gambling, with lives as well as money, Rick awaits his destiny - in the form of an old flame portrayed by Ingrid Bergman. The script by Howard Koch and the Epstein Brothers won an Oscar as did Hal Wallis for Best Picture and Michael Curtiz for Best Director. Bogart was rewarded with his first Academy Award Oscar nomination. The film has numerous memorable lines that are quoted to this day and the timeless romance has kept it as one of the greatest films of all time. The rare insert offered here is considered one of the best posters produced for the ad campaign with all of the principal characters shown. The insert was folded and has several additional horizontal creases. There are a few very small tears in the upper border area but these have been reinforced with archival tape on the verso. There is also some wear and creasing on the lower left corner and some light separation beginning at the edge of all the fold lines. There is one pinhole above Conrad Veidt's credit and another above Sydney Greenstreet's fez and there are a few surface scratches in Bergman's credit and in the upper left of the background. Other than these minor issues, this insert is quite spectacular. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
