    Description

    No Way Out (20th Century Fox, 1950). One Sheet (27" X 41") Paul Rand Artwork.
    In this landmark film about racial tensions, Richard Widmark plays a wounded robber who spews racist slurs at the doctor (Sidney Poitier) assigned to care for him in the police hospital. When the criminal's brother dies, who is also in the same ward, the bigot holds the physician responsible. Linda Darnell plays Widmark's girlfriend, who tires of his hateful ways. Designed by Paul Rand, this engaging poster features a set of watchful eyes (maybe Darnell's) and a set of telltale empty handcuffs, all against a giant red arrow pointing in the direction of "nowhere." Professional restoration has corrected fold wear, misfolding, pinholes and small tears in the borders, and chips in the borders and folds. There is a mild tear near the center crossfold and a larger tear from the left border into the "N" of "No." There is some partially restored writing and ink stamp bleedthrough that is slightly visible in the upper background, and the poster has a few unaddressed stains and smudges. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
