    Description

    Leave Her to Heaven (20th Century Fox, 1948). First Release Danish Poster (24' X 33.5"). Film Noir.
    This wonderfully noirish first release Danish poster comes much closer to the true heart of this classic film than any of the US paper. The US paper emphasizes the sex/love angle of the film with a clinch scene and Gene Tierney smiling in a two-piece bathing suit as an inset. This Danish poster features in a black shadowy clouded drawing at the top, the most chilling moment in the film, when Tierney watches from the rowboat as the helpless polio/cramp stricken teenager "'Danny" drowns in Deer Lake while she calmly glares at him in an unnerving dispassionate stare. The large portrait below dramatically echos that coldness and self-serving intensity. Starring Gene Tierney, Cornel Wilde, Jeanne Crain, Vincent Price, Mary Philips, Ray Collins, Gene Lockhart, Reed Hadley, Darryl Hickman, Chill Wills. Directed by John M. Stahl. A restored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. There were tears in the top left corner, and a Dutch censor stamp in the bottom right, which have received top notch touch-up. A poster graded Very Fine+ may still be on Linen, but this is the highest grade allowed for a poster in this state. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Very Fine+ on Linen.
