DescriptionCasablanca (Warner Bros., 1948). Very Fine on Linen. First Post-War Release Austrian One Sheet (24" X 34").
Although Casablanca was originally released in 1942, due to the war, it could not be shown in many countries around the world. One of those was Austria, which was under Nazi occupation in 1942 and could not have possibly shown the film due to its anti-Nazi sentiments. It wasn't until 1948 that the film received its first release in the now free country. This Austrian poster depicts all of the film's major stars from some of the film's key moments, including Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henried, Conrad Veidt, Claude Rains and Sydney Greenstreet. Prior to restoration, the poster had fold wear and pinholes. There is still a faint ink stamp bleedthrough at the bottom.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
