    Description

    Don't Bother to Knock (20th Century Fox, 1952). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Featuring one of the very best poster images of Marilyn Monroe, this piece is from the chilling film Don't Bother to Knock. Co-starring Richard Widmark and Anne Bancroft, the picture follows a young woman (Monroe) whose insanity is slowly revealed. An early role for Monroe, it brought her from bit-part obscurity to the status of one of the most important actresses in Hollywood. Careful restoration has addressed chips in the left border and vertical fold, two corner chips, staple holes in the image area, and small tears in the credits and background. A censor stamp has been airbrushed on Monroe's chest, and the linen has been trimmed up to the borders. The poster now displays quite nicely. Fine on Linen.
