    Description

    The Big Sleep (Warner Brothers - First National, 1946) Lobby Card (11" X 14"). When this Bogart and Bacall vehicle was produced in 1945, it had several scenes that explained some of the convoluted plot twists. But after "To Have and Have Not" came out and made Bacall a star, it was decided to beef up her part. The famous sexually double-edged discussion of horse racing scene was one of the results of that decision, but a certain loss of coherency also occurred. Still, this is one of the most stylish film noirs ever released. Bogart and Bacall are perfectly cast and the supporting actors, including John Ridgely, Martha Vickers, Dorothy Malone, Regis Toomey and Elisha Cook Jr., sharply draw their roles. Howard Hawks directs from a script by William Faulkner, Leigh Brackett and Jules Furthman. This scene show Louis Jean Heydt holding a gun on Bogie and Bacall. Pinholes, a small corner crease and a tiny scuff mark on this brightly colored, very clean lobby. Very Fine-.
