    Description

    M (Unitis, 1960). First Post-War Release Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 78") Niso "Kremos" Ramponi Artwork.
    Inspired by the crimes of a real-life murderer at large in Düsseldorf, German director Fritz Lang created yet another classic that ventured outside the normal bounds of early filmmaking, and laid the foundations for a whole new genre in the process. Peter Lorre gave the performance of a lifetime as child killer Hans Beckert, a part specifically written for the actor by Lang himself. Despite it being his first ever starring role, Lorre's bone chilling performance disturbed audiences and enthralled critics, gaining international praise and the attention of Hollywood. Lang considered this picture his greatest work, a well-earned distinction considering its instrumental influence on the burgeoning film noir genre. Presented for the first time at Heritage, Niso "Kremos" Ramponi's illustration has a perfect blend of unsettling imagery and exposition, making this piece a fine addition to any classic collection. This incredible poster looks amazing after touchup to the folds with mild chips and tears, and to pinholes in the interior. Some of the airbrushing at the right side of the joint is beginning to crack. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
