    Description

    Out of the Past (RKO, 1947). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B, William Rose Artwork.
    Film noir is at its finest in the hands of director Jacques Tourneur, aided by his all star cast of Robert Mitchum, Kirk Douglas, Jane Greer, and Rhonda Fleming. A pall of darkness and a sense of doom settle over the story as we watch Jeff Bailey (Mitchum) trying to make a life for himself and girlfriend Meta, but he just can't escape his past dealings with mobster Whit Sterling (Douglas) and femme fatale Kathie (Greer). The scenes between the trapped Mitchum and the smiling but sadistic Douglas are among the most iconic images of film history. Much rarer than the style A, this style B half sheet has never been folded, and has had light partial touchup applied to creases, edge wear, small tears in the borders, and a minor chip in the lower right corner. These issues may still be visible, as well as unaddressed pinholes in the borders, smudging, mild toning at the edges, and color fading. Fine- on Paper.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
