DescriptionHigh Sierra (Warner Brothers, 1941). Good- on Paper. Linen Finish Insert (14" X 36").
Released just prior to The Maltese Falcon, the movie that would make Humphrey Bogart a superstar, this was the last time Bogie would receive second billing, in this case, just after Ida Lupino. In this taut crime drama, Bogart plays Roy "Mad Dog" Earle, a criminal whose release from prison is arranged so that he can aid in an upcoming robbery. When things go wrong, Earle hides out in the Sierra mountains, but things are complicated when he becomes personally involved with a local farming family. This classic, linen-textured insert has been expertly paperbacked and restored. Repairs have been made to scattered pinholes, tears into the title and background, and small border chips. There was paper loss in the lower image and border that has been replaced, and the poster once showed staining throughout. It also displays some post-restoration creasing, and the borders have been airbrushed. Now display-ready, it's an exceptional piece from one of Bogart's best films. Of all of the posters produced for this picture, the insert sports the best image with Bogart leaning on his shotgun, ready to rob banks as "Mad Dog." Good- on Paper.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
