    Description

    Casablanca (Warner Bros., R-1953). Very Fine+. Horizontal Italian Photobusta (13.25" X 19.25").
    Drama, danger, romance. Michael Curtiz's landmark film brought all of these winning elements to the screen with a masterful quality impossible to imitate, though many have tried. Nominated for a total of eight Academy Awards and winner of three, Casablanca's perfect storm of talented writing paired with keen direction and all-star cast culminated into a film more than worthy of its outstanding picture status. This photobusta features the climatic confrontation between Humphrey Bogart as Rick Blaine and Conrad Veidt as Major Heinrich Strasser. Signs of handling include light edge wear and creases, a few pinholes, a very minor tear, or faint foxing in the borders. This presents a opportunity for collectors to obtain this rare Italian photobusta, which has not been offered by Heritage in over a decade.


    Estimate: $10,000 - $20,000.
