    Description

    Casablanca (Warner Brothers, 1942). Window Card (14" X 22").
    Although the script was unfinished when shooting began, and the process of making the film was unusually chaotic, the result was a true American film classic. Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) is the proprietor of Ricks' American Cafe, located in the mysterious city of Casablanca, trying to maintain an air of neutrality during the Second World war. When old flame Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) walks through his door seeking to flee the country with her husband, resistance leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), Blaine's world is turned upside down. The film, which won three Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director (Michael Curtiz), contains some of the most memorable lines in movie history, including, "Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship," "We'll always have Paris," and, of course, "Here's looking at you, kid." It should come as no surprise, then, that paper on this title is extremely rare and desirable. This lovely window card had small tears in the borders, a crease in the imprint area, and corner bends in the top right and bottom left, but these are all minor flaws that do nothing to detract from the overwhelming beauty and desirability of this great piece. There has been airbrush work in the upper and lower imprint areas. Minimal restoration on a very desirable piece! Fine/Very Fine.
