    Description

    Out of the Past (RKO, 1948). Very Fine- on Linen. Italian 4 - Fogli (54.5" X 78.5"). Revera Artwork.
    Considered to be a defining classic in film noir, Jacques Tourneur's dark and twisting plot, heavily shadowed scenes, and Robert Mitchum's perfectly hard-boiled private eye have made this thrilling crime drama an enduring icon of its genre. Black-and-white cinematographer Nicholas Musuraca masterfully creates a persistent atmosphere of tension and terror, highlighting the inherent danger in the film's source material, Daniel Mainwaring's Build my Gallows High. To top it all off, Mitchum gives the defining performance of his career, and Jane Greer portrays a flawless mix of erotic and lethal as the double crossing femme fatale. Both stars are seen here in this never before offered Italian 4 - fogli, a rare chance for fans to complete their noir collections. After professional restoration this Heritage first looks fantastic, no longer showing edge and fold wear, pinholes, minor tears, and small chips. The borders have been airbrushed finalizing the poster's restoration. Very Fine- on Linen.
