DescriptionCasablanca (United Artists, R-1962). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. Italian Horizontal Photobustas (5) (26.25" X 18.75").
Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains, Paul Henreid, Conrad Veidt, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, all of this wartime classic's biggest stars feature in these colorful photobustas, which are making only their second appearance at Heritage. Each of the actors turned in memorable performances, bringing to life Michael Curtiz's thrilling story of love lost and courage won. General wear includes mild edge and fold wear, creasing, pinholes, and small tears. The photobusta featuring Humphrey Bogart at the gambling table has a paper lift with light touchup and a small ink stamp in the upper background, and the one with Claude Rains and Conrad Veidt has a few surface indentations and ink markings. The photobusta with Bogart and Peter Lorre has minor paper lifts at the top edge. Items from Casablanca are always popular pieces for classic hobbyists, and these vibrant photobustas would make an excellent acquisition.
Estimate: $3,500 - $7,000.
