    Dark Victory (Warner Brothers, 1946). Italian Poster (27" X 39"). Bette Davis earned an Oscar nomination for her role as the reformed, hedonistic Long Island heiress who finds new meaning to her life after she is stricken with a brain tumor. Co-starring is George Brent as Dr. Frederick Steele, Davis' doctor and fiance, and Humphrey Bogart as the devoted stable master Michael O'Leary. This three-hankie weeper has long been held as a perennial favorite among Bette Davis fans. This Italian release poster is most likely post-WWII which would mean its release was not until at least 1946. This poster has slight fold line wear with a touch more at the fold line intersections, three small holes in the neck and chin area, light scuffs, and border pinholes. The poster has been professionally restored, rendering these defects hard to detect. The beautiful portrait of Davis on the poster was created by famed Italian artist Luigi Martinati. Very Fine on Linen.
