DescriptionCasablanca (Warner Bros., R-1949). Fine+. Italian Photobusta (13.5" X 9.5").
A first time offer from Heritage this early Italian photobusta pictures Rick (Humphrey Bogart) negotiating the sale of his casino to Signor Ferrari (Sydney Greenstreet) who runs the Blue Parrot. This most famous scene is from the Academy Award winning film which stars Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. These very early reissue Italian photobustas are extremely difficult to find. The image has slightly darkened over time and there is one pinhole in each corner and a tiny chip off of the lower left corner.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
