    Description

    The African Queen (Independent Film Distribution, 1952). British One Sheet (27" X 40").
    Fantastic graphics and portraits adorn this very rare country-of-origin one sheet as this was a U.K./U.S. co-production, to one of the true classics of the silver screen. Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn star in this adaptation of C.S. Forester's book by critic James Agee and directed by John Huston, about an aging spinster and a drunken river boat captain sailing down a river to challenge a German gunboat. The poster has been linen backed, primarily to flatten the fold lines. There is very minimal color touchup to those folds and just a slight bit more to the three centerpoints. Get this poster while you can as this is one of the few existing copies of this poster known. Very Fine+ on Linen.


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