Description

    The Man with the Golden Arm (United Artists, 1955). Banner (24" X 72").
    The central image on this very scarce full size banner is the artwork of Saul Bass, creator of memorable logos for many great films. Bass cleverly chose the black paper cut-out of a twisted heroin addict's arm, noting that the arm is the single most powerful image of real addiction. That he stamped both the opening credits and most of the poster artwork with this central image, and not that of Frank Sinatra's famous face, was a stroke of genius. There are pinholes in the image, smudging in the borders, tears in the bottom right corner, and corner bends in the top left and bottom right. A chance at one of Bass's rarest pieces. Rolled, Fine.
