DescriptionThe African Queen (United Artists, 1952). French Grande (44.5" X 61.5").
The story of the making of this classic film is, in many ways, even more gripping than the film story itself. Shot largely on location in Africa, the cast was plagued with a host of problems, including frequent bouts of dysentery (only director John Huston and Humphrey Bogart were immune from this affliction, as they totally eschewed drinking water, preferring large quantities of imported Scotch instead, according to co-star Katharine Hepburn). The result of all the trial and hardship the cast endured is one of the greatest adventure movies ever filmed, a high point in the careers of both Bogart and Hepburn. Offered here is a lovely grande for this landmark film from the original French release, with a similar layout and artwork as the British one sheet. It had a tear in the top center, minor foldwear, a small chip in the top right corner, but these slight flaws have all been addressed with expert professional restoration. Always in high demand, paper from this title is extremely popular with collectors. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $2,000 - up.
