DescriptionCasablanca (Warner Bros., 1942). Fine+. Uncut Pressbook (24 Pages, Plus 4 Page Ad Supplement, 11" X 17").
Despite the great talent in Hollywood at the time, no one other than Humphrey Bogart could have filled the role of Rick Blaine, a world-weary ex-freedom fighter who runs a nightclub in Casablanca during the early part of WWII. This Michael Curtiz-directed masterpiece is considered by many to be the best film ever made. The pressbook displays such indications of handling as slight edge and spine wear, spine separations, light creases, as well as unobtrusive stains and smudges. There are small tears and chips, some toning due to age in the pages, and the front cover has a complete spine separation. This pressbook has a soft horizontal fold and the ad supplement is missing pages three through six.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
