Description

    Calcutta (Paramount, 1946). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Alan Ladd stars with Gail Russell in this film noir classic about an air-cargo pilot whose partner is killed by jewel smugglers. In true noir fashion, this fantastic one sheet hints at the dark twists and smoking guns that await audiences. It also happens to be considered one of the best poster designs of the 1940s. Touchup has been applied to the folds, pinholes, and small corner chips. There is some touchup to the bottom left border and the linen has been trimmed to the border. There is some staining on the verso, however it does not show through to the beautiful image. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
