    Description

    The Big Sleep (Warner Brothers, 1947). French Grande (47" X 63") Portrait Style.
    A first time offer from Heritage, this stunning French grande sizzles, intimating the onscreen chemistry between Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. It's a classic Howard Hawks mystery/thriller based on Raymond Chandler's first novel. Bogart is introduced to audiences as the unsentimental, hard-nosed private eye Philip Marlowe. This is the second film featuring Bogart and Bacall, solidifying the duo as one of the best in the business. This extremely rare portrait style French grande features Bogart and Bacall in striking profile, compliments of artist Rocher Vacher. It takes the prize as one of the best posters we've seen for the film. Only touchup to the folds and a pinhole in Bacall's forehead was required, resulting in one super-fine looking poster! Very Fine+ on Linen.
