    Description

    They Drive By Night (Warner Brothers, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Over 65 years after its release, this film isn't remembered primarily as a George Raft flick, nor as the film that made a star of Ida Lupino. It's now remembered as Humphrey Bogart's last go 'round in character/actor purgatory. The next year he would lead the casts of "High Sierra" and "The Maltese Falcon;" the year after that he made "Casablanca." This one sheet has to be one of the best unrestored examples still in existance. This poster appears to be unused and if there are any flaws they could only be the small bit of archival tape behind the lower centerpoint and a small bit supporting a three quarter inch tear in the lower border. This poster is white and the colors are crisp. It is a clean and beautiful poster. Very Fine+.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
