    Description

    Casablanca (Warner Bros., 1942). Very Fine- on Linen. Australian Daybill (13" X 30").
    "Everybody Comes to Rick's." It wasn't just the original title to Murray Burnett's play, but also applied to its legion of fans, and the cast of characters that would populate Michael Curtiz's film, that was better known as Casablanca. Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid became the legendary love triangle in this film, with a supporting cast including Conrad Veidt, Peter Lorre, Claude Rains, Sydney Greenstreet and many others. And what makes this poster so nice, is that everyone appears on it. The picture went on to become one of the most important films in Hollywood history, and received many Oscars as well, including Best Picture, Director and Screenplay. Humphrey Bogart, who had already achieved huge status for his roles in High Sierra and The Maltese Falcon, would solidify his place in Hollywood legend as the saloon keeper Rick Blaine and would also be nominated for Best Actor for the first time. Using a format similar to the U.S. insert, this poster has received professional restoration to correct some edge wear, a few creases, pinholes, and minor chips. Also addressed were small paper lifts near the edges as well as a couple of thin surface scuffs. There are a few faint smudges still visible. As the majority of the wear was in the borders, this daybill displays beautifully and will make an excellent addition to any collection.


    Estimate: $6,000 - $12,000.
