    Description

    The African Queen (Distribuzione Associata Internationale, 1952). Fine- on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (37.5" X 53.5").
    Offered for the first time at Heritage is this very rare Italian 2 - fogli. Humphrey Bogart may have risen to fame playing gangsters during the 1930s, but it was his 1952 performance that won him an Oscar for portraying a drunken riverboat captain on a mission, accompanied by spinster Katharine Hepburn, to sink a German battleship during WWI. This remains one of Bogart's and Hepburn's best pictures. Partially restored, this Italian poster has fold wear and separations, pinholes, creases, unobtrusive smudges, and tears. There were chips in the borders and folds, as well as a section of paper loss in the upper right corner extending into some of the text at the top. Some of these issues are still noticeable and the poster has had each of its borders trimmed by approximately 0.75."
