    Description

    High Sierra (Warner Brothers, 1941). Insert (14" X 36"). Writer John Huston and director Raoul Walsh combined efforts to bring Humphrey Bogart out of B-picture oblivion and onto the A-picture list with this riveting gangster flic with heart. Bogart was to receive top billing in an A film for the first time, but at the last minute, Jack Warner decided to give that distinction to Ida Lupino, whom the studio was heavily pushing for stardom. All the same, if you're a fan of gangster films or Humphrey Bogart, then this is THE poster to have for this pivotal moment in cinema history. Of all of the posters produced for this film, the insert sports the best image with Bogart leaning on his shotgun, ready to rob banks as "Mad Dog" Roy Earle. This poster is also incredibly rare with only a few copies known to exist. This linen-finish insert has been paper-backed to repair several tears, most notable one in each side of the lower section of the poster and another in the bottom going into the "Warner Brothers". There was a chip off of the lower left corner and a chip out of the upper border. There has been color touch to the fold lines and several "cracks" in the linen finish. Overall, the poster is now quite presentable. Very Good/Fine on paper.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
