    Scarlet Street (Universal, 1946). Italian 2 - Fogli (39" X 55") F. Carfagni Artwork.
    Italian artist F. Carfagni depicts the conflicted, angst-filled visage of Edward G. Robinson on this engaging large format poster for Scarlet Street. Masterfully directed by Fritz Lang, Robinson plays Christopher Cross, an ordinary man in a loveless marriage, who is lured into an affair when he meets a woman named Kitty (Joan Bennett). Kitty manipulates Robinson into embezzling money from his employer in order to pay for her lavish lifestyle. When Cross realizes he has been used, he starts on a downward spiral, ultimately leading to murder by the film's end, where he's so haunted by guilt and remorse that he suffers a mental breakdown. More striking than its American counterparts, this poster is a fantastic find. Professional restoration has addressed fold wear, pinholes, a tear from the right border into the title, and some chips in the borders and folds. The borders have been airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
