DescriptionCasablanca (Warner Bros., 1947). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. French Moyenne (24" X 31") V. Cintullys Artwork.
American expatriate Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) runs the top night spot in Casablanca during the early years of WWII, but he gets more than he bargained for when a European resistance fighter comes to town, with Rick's old flame (Ingrid Bergman) in tow. Ranked as the #3 film of all time in the American Film Institute's 2007 poll, this is certainly a classic, loved by film fans everywhere. This rare and colorful French moyenne has excellent portraits of the stars and a great design. It is making only its second appearance at Heritage and has had partial touchup to the folds, pinholes, and minor tears. There are some unaddressed stains in the borders, a minute paper lift in the title, and a nick in the right edge. The linen has been trimmed to the borders.
Estimate: $30,000 - $60,000.
