Description

    Double Indemnity (Paramount, 1944). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    A classic film noir from start to finish, Billy Wilder transformed James M. Cain's popular novel into a box office sensation, forever influencing crime thrillers in every aspect essential to the genre. From it's moodily shadowed scenery, sizzling spark between doomed lovers Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck, and it's violent portrayal of murky morality, Billy Wilder's twisted tale of murder and love gone wrong practically invented the noir genre. Ranking high on the list of essential posters for any collector, original one sheets for this hardboiled classic are always in demand. Restoration has addressed pinholes in the corners, chips and tears in the borders and interior, and a tear behind MacMurray's back. There was also some paper loss in the corners, a chip with a tear at the center crossfold through the gun, and a tear in the first "M" of "MacMurray." Still visible are small tears and faint staining in the borders, faint dust shadows along the edges, a nick in the upper right border, and a vertical tear in Edward G. Robinson's face. There are some minor cracks in the airbrushing and the poster is beginning to separate from the masa paper in some places. Fine on Linen.
