    Description

    The Big Sleep (Warner Brothers, 1946). 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 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 and unbacked half sheet, with beautiful portrait shots of Bogart and Bacall, shows light fold wear, some edge wear, and corner bumps, as well as slight edge tears and minor imperfections that have been gently repaired. Don't miss this opportunity to add this exciting piece to your collection! Very Fine-.
