    Description

    The Big Sleep (Warner Bros., 1946). Fine on Linen. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A.
    Although following the plot of this classic film noir epic can be more than a little challenging, there's no denying the sizzling chemistry between the stars, and real-life couple, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. The screen practically ignites each time this classic pair is together. In addition, this movie gave Bogart a marvelous opportunity to demonstrate his considerable range as an actor, from tough-guy private eye to suave romantic lead, with a bit of comedy thrown in for good measure. A keystone film noir thriller, this movie should be on every cinemaphile's short-list of favorite films. This highly desirable half sheet, with beautiful portrait shots of Bogart and Bacall, has had touchup applied to the folds and fold separation, edge wear, light creases, and small tears. There was a tear into Bacall's forehead, and the poster still shows some staining to the lower right. The linen has been trimmed to the border.
