DescriptionCasablanca (Warner Bros., R-1953). Fine+. Horizontal Italian Photobusta (19.25" X 13.25").
Heritage is proud to present this 1953 reissue Italian photobusta for the first time. Casablanca is truly a timeless classic, with brilliant casting, outstanding performances and direction, and careful attention to every facet of the production. Such a winning combination resulted in Best Picture, Screenplay and Director Oscars, as well as nominations for Humphrey Bogart for Best Actor and Claude Rains as Best Supporting Actor. Stars Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, and character actor John Qualen are featured on this photobusta. Corrections have been made to a couple of small chips and tears in the upper right corner, as well as a paper lift in the upper background, which displays surface rippling. Unaddressed wear includes slight creases, light edge wear, very minor tears, or faint stains. There is a small piece of mending tissue on the verso bracing the corrections made to the upper right corner, as well as a splice which was used to repair one of the chips.
Estimate: $10,000 - $20,000.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
