DescriptionCasablanca (Warner Bros., R-1953). Very Fine-. Horizontal Italian Photobusta (19.25" X 13.25").
Heritage has the pleasure of presenting this Italian photobusta for the first time. Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman deliver standout performances in what many consider to be one of the finest films in cinema history. Against the backdrop of wartime Casablanca, they rekindle a romance amidst political intrigue, corruption, and murder. A triumph with critics and audiences alike, the picture went on to win the Oscar for Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay, and Bogart would receive his first nomination for Best Actor. This 1953 reissue Italian photobusta features Ingrid Bergman with co-star Paul Henreid. The photobusta shows such signs of use as slight edge wear, mild creasing, pinholes, as well as minor tears and chips, including a lower right corner chip. There is a small tear in the lower left corner, a few unobtrusive stains, and a few strips of cellophane tape on the verso bracing tears. The majority of the wear is in the periphery of the image.
Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
