    Description

    Dead End (United Artists, R-1940s). British Quad (30" X 40"). Lillian Hellman adapted Sidney Kingsley's Pulitzer Prize winning play about the disparities between rich and poor along New York City's East River. The conflict comes down to a struggle for the hearts and minds of some of the children of the slums, played by the Dead End Kids in their first film. On one side is slick mobster Humphrey Bogart, and facing off with him is Sylvia Sidney, sister to one of the Kids, and Joel McCrea, an unemployed architect. This British quad has edge wear on the bottom border with tears and chips, a corner bend on the top left, and a hole in the bottom right corner. While the poster has an older restoration, it still has a very nice appearance. Though he was billed below Sidney and McCrea in the original release, Bogart always appeared first in later releases, as he is here. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
