DescriptionCalcutta (Paramount, 1946). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Six Sheet (78.75" X 80.25").
Alan Ladd is a carefree pilot who handles the air freight route between Calcutta and Chungking in director John Farrow's exciting film noir. When one of Ladd's partners, played by John Whitney, is murdered by jewel smugglers, Ladd sets out to bring them to justice. This fast-paced crime thriller also features William Bendix, the gorgeous Gail Russell, and June Duprez. In true noir fashion, this fantastic six sheet hints at the dark twists and smoking guns that await audiences. Offered for only the second time, this rare six sheet has benefitted from professional restoration to address edge and fold wear, moderate fold separations, pinholes, and small tears. There was scattered chipping in the borders and folds, as well as some paper loss in the lower left border. A few of the smaller chips were in the actor's images, and the borders have been airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
