DescriptionCasablanca (Warner Bros., R-1953). Folded, Fine+. Italian Photobusta (19.25" X 13.25").
This photobusta from Casablanca pictures not only leading stars Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid, but also Jack Warner's stepdaughter Joy Page and Austrian actor Helmut Dantine, an actual refugee who had spent three months in a concentration camp. A rare collectible to be sure, this photobusta shows soft creases, pinholes, light surface scuffs and scratches, and minor stains. There has been partial touchup applied to some of these issues, and the photobusta still shows small tears, mild toning, and some surface rippling. Also present are pieces and strips of masking and cellophane tape on the verso with some tape stain bleedthrough. These issues, however, do not greatly affect the interior image of the poster, an item Casablanca collectors will be eager to own!
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
