Description

    Detour (PRC, 1945). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Director Edgar Ulmer shot this film noir masterpiece in just six days. Tom Neal is a hitch-hiking pianist who catches a ride with a man soon found murdered. Neal hides the body and assumes the man's identity. A woman (played by the aptly named actress Ann Savage) discovers his deception and Neal is blackmailed into her seedy schemes. The film's dark exploration of the fluid nature of identity would be taken up in high-art films like Michelangelo Antonioni's "The Passenger," but the film's high style is hard to duplicate. Posters for this title are rare and have always been in demand by film noir connoisseurs. This poster has almost no wear, perhaps the smallest beginnings of some crossfold separation, with clean borders, crisp corners and sharp edges. Near Mint.
