DescriptionCasablanca (Warner Brothers, R-1962). Very Fine on Linen. Italian 4 - Fogli (54.5" X 77") Silvano "Nano" Campeggi Artwork.
Perhaps the greatest film ever made, a movie in which Hollywood seemingly got everything right! Casablanca is truly a timeless classic, with brilliant casting, outstanding performances and direction, and careful attention to every facet of the production. Such a winning combination resulted in Best Picture, Screenplay and Director Oscars, as well as nominations for Humphrey Bogart for Best Actor and Claude Rains as Best Supporting Actor. With the unforgettable performances by the inimitable Bogart as the reluctant hero, the heart-breaking Ingrid Bergman, a sterling supporting cast, and the film's famously quotable dialogue, Casablanca has assumed iconic stature in American popular culture. Artist Silvano "Nano" Campeggi updates the classic couple with a 1960s art style on this exceptional poster, which has had touchup applied to the folds and a few staple holes in the background. There are also some unaddressed staple holes in the borders and background that are still visible. The linen has been trimmed to the border, but not into the poster itself.
Estimate: $15,000 - $30,000.
