    Description

    The Blue Dahlia (Paramount, 1946). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Raymond Chandler penned the screen play for this film noir murder mystery that reunited Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, and was nominated for an Oscar. Ladd stars as a callous, no-nonsense pilot who comes home to find his wife in the arms of another man. The two have a terrible fight, and she's later found dead. Ladd enlists the aid of the sultry Lake to help prove his innocence and clear his name. Featuring an image that screams noir, this head-turner of a one sheet has been beautifully restored to address two horizontal tears in the upper border, a tear near the right border at the center horizontal fold, and a center crossfold chip. The borders have been airbrushed, and touchup has been applied to the upper credits and the eyes of Lake and Ladd. Not to be missed by film noir collectors! Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
