    Elevator to the Gallows (Lux Compagnie Cinématographique de France, 1958). French Grande (47" X 63").
    Louis Malle's directorial debut features a blistering performance by Jeanne Moreau as a disenchanted wife plotting to kill her husband and make it look like suicide. A modern film noir, with a superb score by jazz legend Miles Davis. This evocative country-of-origin poster features stark black-and-white artwork. The poster is in great condition, having had only some fold wear with crossfold separations and a crease in the bottom border, running into the credits area, as problems, and these have been addressed with professional restoration. Very Fine on Linen.
