DescriptionCasablanca (Warner Brothers, 1942). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41").
An Academy Award winner so classic and so well known, this iconic poster featuring stars Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman almost sells itself! Of course, the poster's newspaper-like motif provides plenty of appearance opportunities for several other stars in Michael Curtiz's masterpiece, with Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt, and Peter Lorre all visible. A scarce collector's item that transcends genres, one sheets for this picture are among the most in-demand posters within the hobby. This copy has benefitted from the professional restoration of fold wear and separations, pinholes, and mostly small tears. There was some staining at the bottom, with airbrushing at a few places in the red background. The upper portion of the poster was affected by very few of these issues with only light bits of touchup to Bogart and Bergman's images. The colors are still nice and bright in this piece, making it a fine collectible sure to attract attention.
Estimate: $25,000 - $50,000.
