    Description

    The Postman Always Rings Twice (MGM, 1946). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41.25").
    One of the best film noirs of all time, this screen adaptation of James M. Cain's novel finds Cora Smith (Lana Turner) and Frank Chambers (John Garfield) entangled in a smoldering affair too intense to last, leaving murder, revenge, and tragedy in its wake. Too bad for them, the couple can't outrun the past, even after beating the murder rap for offing the vixen's husband (Cecil Kellaway). Although Cain's novel was written in 1934, MGM had to wait until 1946 before they were allowed to make such a dark film. A classic collectible always in demand, this moody one sheet has received professional restoration to address edge and fold wear, fold separations, pinholes, and small tears. Also repaired were some chips in the borders, and the borders have been airbrushed.
