    Description

    Under-Cover Man (Paramount, 1932). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Three Sheet (41.5" X 80.25"). From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
    Never before offered at Heritage, this is the only known copy of this three sheet. George Raft (in his first starring role) plays a conman who goes to the cops after his father is murdered and asks to go undercover to find the killers. Nancy Carroll plays the sister of another victim who joins with Raft to infiltrate the crime syndicate. This stone litho three sheet has received restoration to address some fold wear and separation, pinholes, as well as some chips and tears. There is a bit of cracking in the airbrushing below George Raft's hand and an unaddressed paper lift in the streetlamp. The borders have been partially airbrushed and some of the credits have also been airbrushed.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
