    Dark Passage (Warner Brothers, 1947). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Dark Passage was the third film to showcase the charismatic pairing of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, and certainly resides in the pantheon of film noir greats. It had been almost two years since the couple worked together on The Big Sleep, and when this film was finally released the studio heralded their reappearance with the "Together Again!" tagline. The film was one of the first few major pictures to make extensive use of the "subjective camera" technique - Robert Montgomery had done so the year before with Lady in the Lake, and Rouben Mamoulian to a lesser degree in 1931's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - and studio head Jack L. Warner was less than thrilled to discover that their most bankable star's face would not actually be shown until halfway through the movie. Fortunately, by the time he made this discovery production was too far along for the film to be changed. The one sheet features a dynamic use of color, along with a romantic portrait of the leads, and presents wonderfully. Touchup has been applied to the folds, and a minor chip in the top left corner, along with a small tear and some writing bleedthrough in the lower border. Very Fine on Linen.
