    Description

    The Big Shot (Warner Brothers, 1942). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A. Filmed between "The Maltese Falcon" and "Casablanca," Bogart is three-time loser Duke Berne, who plans an armored car robbery just after he gets out of prison, even though getting caught would mean life in the big house. This would be the last time Bogey would play a gangster. This great half sheet is deceptively simple in its very effective graphics. Bogart's character spends the latter part of the film realizing he is no good for Lorna (Irene Manning), and spends the rest of the film atoning for his sins. That attitude is totally reflected in the look on his face. Luckily this terrific image does not have the normally seen foldline right through Bogart's eyes, as the poster is original and unfolded. There is minor soiling, a 2" tear in the right border and a 3" tear in the top left border, both repaired with archival tape on the back. There are slight surface scuffs in the B of Bogart and the G of Big. This half sheet and the title card, which are identical in design, are the best posters on this title! Very Fine+.
