DescriptionKnock on Any Door (Columbia C.E.I.A.D., 1949). Very Fine on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (38.5" X 54.75") Anselmo Ballester Artwork.
When troubled Nick Romano (John Derek) finds himself on the wrong side of the law, he engages charismatic attorney Andrew Morton (Humphrey Bogart) to defend him. Directed by Nicolas Ray, the film boasts the memorable line "Live fast, die young, and leave a good-looking corpse." This striking and gorgeous poster, with art by noted Italian poster designer Anselmo Ballester, has received light touchup to the folds, and the poster still shows unaddressed pinholes and a small gouge in the lower left corner. Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
