The Tarnished Angels (Universal International, 1958). Reynold Brown Original 24-Sheet Artwork in Gouache (18.5" X 34").
    After beginning his art career as a technical designer during WWII, and then as a magazine and paperback illustrator, Reynold Brown met Universal studio art director Mischa Kallis in the early 1950s and was offered a job in 1952. His first poster assignment was for the Gregory Peck adventure, The World in His Arms and soon his unlimited talent was being used for more and more poster designs. His innate abilities to capture a likeness and a subject's features and personality is evident in this rare and very special design for the Style A six sheet for The Tarnished Angels. The size of the piece is 18.5" X 34" and the image area measures 13" X 29" on board. The portraits are painted in gouache (a denser form of watercolor), the standard medium used by Brown. The mock-up also has handwritten notes in pencil and a mylar overlay with the stars names. Brown also did the artwork for an earlier Sirk classic, Written on the Wind, which featured the same stars -- Rock Hudson, Robert Stack, and Dorothy Malone. Original artwork rarely turns up for sale, and is always highly collectable, especially for an artist of this caliber; this is an excellent opportunity to add an original piece to your movie poster collection. Very Fine.
