DescriptionChain Lightning (Warner Brothers, 1949). Very Fine- on Linen. Italian 4 - Fogli (53.75" X 78") Alfredo Capitani Artwork.
Humphrey Bogart, along with Raymond Massey and Eleanor Parker, star in this tale of a test pilot who must prove whether a deadly eject switch works on a new jet...or not. Jets were just making headlines around the world when Warner Brothers put this feature into production, and this stunning poster puts the global significance of the jet into perspective. Alfredo Capitani, one of Italy's best poster artists, created a series of fabulous images for the picture, including this stellar illustration of Bogey. Conservation includes corrections to fold wear and pinholes into the interior, a few of which are unaddressed. The poster shows some unobtrusive smudging and and very faint bleedthrough from an ink stamp on the verso. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
