    Description

    Casablanca (Warner Brothers, R-1956). Folded, Very Fine. German A1 (23.5" X 33") Hans Otto Wendt Artwork.
    One of the most honored and beloved American films of all time, this WWII era classic set the standard for romantic spy thrillers. Humphrey Bogart is Rick Blaine, a nightclub owner who's grown tired of wars and the men who fight them. He manages to steer clear of the Nazis until his former lover (Ingrid Bergman) turns up with her husband (Paul Henreid) looking for safe passage to America. A portrait of the stunning Bergman dominates this scarce poster, accompanied by Dooley Wilson down below, painted by Hans Otto Wendt. Rarely seen at auction, this German poster has very slight edge and fold wear, minor fold separations, soft creases, and a couple of minute tears. There are a few thin dust shadows, but the aforementioned issues have little effect on the piece's presentation. Folded, Very Fine.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
