    The Lost Weekend (Paramount, 1945). Folded, Very Fine. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Ray Milland dominates the tense atmosphere of this poster for director Billy Wilder's film noir, The Lost Weekend. Milland won an Academy Award for his performance as Don Birnam, an alcoholic writer who goes on a four-day bender. The film's portrayal of alcoholism has had a lasting impact on viewers for decades, and this powerful poster is an excellent representation of the movie's enduring influence. The poster looks great with just some light edge and fold wear, small tears and fold separations, and faint and unobtrusive smudges and stains.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
