Description

    Casablanca (Warner Brothers, 1942). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    In all the gin joints and movie palaces in all the world, there are few more revered and wished for posters than this deceptively simple layout of six key scenes from a near perfect film swirling around a radiant Ingrid Bergman, protected by a trench coated, gun wielding, ultimate anti-hero, Humphrey Bogart. The poster is the work of the legendary designer, Bill Gold (Yankee Doodle Dandy, The Big Sleep, Dial M for Murder,A Streetcar Named Desire, Giant, East of Eden, The Searchers, and literally hundreds more). If you're about to begin seriously collecting, there's no better place to start. If you have most of the films you love represented in your collection, and not this one, there's no better title with which to end. This is an exceptionally clean copy for a film that was an instant hit with the public from the first showing on. The paper on this title endured at least four rungs of distribution, until a great deal of the paper that was ever printed, simply fell apart from the constant use. Top linenbacking needed only to address some minor fold wear. Very Fine on Linen.
