    Description

    Casablanca (Warner Brothers, 1942). Insert (14" X 36").
    Warner Brothers released this wartime tale in hopes it would appeal to their audiences who were facing hardships, including rationing of food and gas and the loss of loved ones in foreign lands. The studio's expectation was to bring a modest profit similar to hundreds of films turned out year after year. A script had been cobbled together by several writers, but was incomplete when production began. The star was one of the studio's secondary actors who had made a climb in billing only recently with the release of a new film called The Maltese Falcon. Eventually, everything fell into place and Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman delivered standout performances in what many consider to be one of the finest films in cinema history. Against the war-torn backdrop of Casablanca, they rekindle a romance amidst political intrigue, corruption, and murder. A triumph with critics and audiences alike, the movie went on to win the Oscar for Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay, and Bogart would receive his first nomination for Best Actor. Heritage is proud to present this scarce insert format, one of the best posters produced for the film's ad campaign. All of the principal characters are shown, and Bogart sports his signature look -- fedora, gun, and trench coat. Signs of minor handling include slight fold wear, pinholes in the corners and two in the background, creasing in the right border, a crease and minor smudging in the top border, and tiny areas of surface paper loss in the bottom and top borders. Folded, Very Fine.
